    Probably Sarah Jane Ayars Richison
    Probably Sarah Jane Ayars Richison
    Picture was found in Alexander Scrapbook and could possibly be either Sarah Jane Ayars who married John Webster Richison or Sarah Jane Davis who married Frank Albert Richison. Comparison with other pictures of Sarah Jane Davis leads me to believe this is most likely Sarah Jane Ayars
