Is this Abigail Watters Case?
IS THIS ABIGAIL WATTERS CASE?

This woman was found in a bunch of pictures by Diana Alverson that her Mother in Law, Lena Belle Beers Alverson had. I am wondering if it could possibly be Niel Beers' Mother in Law, Abigail Watters Case. Abigail Watters Case was born in 1790, and passed away April 1875. The headdress in the picture was talked about, and dated at 1860, which would stand in line with the woman's supposed age. This is what I found regarding the special headdress that she's wearing: Spoon bonnet named for its shallow shape - perched on the crown, could be decorated with a nose gay of flowers and ribbons hanging down. That sounds like that thing that she has on, doesn't it? If anyone can help confirm that this is Abigail Watters Case, please send e-mail to Beth (current address is on the e-mail addresseses page.
