Unknown Woman - Mary Magdalene Aaron

The style of her clothing and hair is earlier than 1870-1875. It seems to be from the 1860s, which would be consistent if it's the person you think it is. See "Victorian Costume for Ladies" by Linda Setnik for more.

Unknown Woman in Walter Cyphert's Photo Collection

I now believe this is a photo of Mary Magdalene Aaron, 1846-1913, daughter of Thomas Aaron and Sarah Jane Osborn. She married John Ruffner in 1868. She was a 2nd cousin once removed of Walter Cyphert.
