including, James; John Aiken; Nathan Jenkins; Margaret; Gilbert Aiken;

The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1860's with Julia in her
teens and her brother likely in his 20's. In addition to their names,
someone notes that they are "Nana's brother and sister" and that Julia is
the "Mother to Jo VANSICKLE" as well.
