More on the Hamilton / Nye family

 This is James Linn Eakins and Mary Eakins.

Mary Permalia Lamb Denbow Eakins was married to James Denbow who died in 1865 from injuries sustained during his fighting in the Civil War.  She then married James Eakins and after his death in 1899, Mary moved to Colorado to live with her grand daughter, Lura Weatherly Nye and Oscar Nye. Lura's mother was Viola Denbow Weatherly, Mary and James Denbow's daughter.

This is Viola Denbow Weatherly.  Below is a picture of the back of the art work which is written by Faye Nye Hamilton and also noted by Dorothy Hamilton Kerr.
