JAMES WIGHT and his sister JULIA WIGHT

James WIGHT was b. 13 Jun 1833 in Delaware, NY to parents Samuel WIGHT (b. 24 Jun 1809 in Roxbury, NY) and Amelia JENKINS (b. 17 Sept 1814).

James died 28 Jun 1864 in Memphis, TN. His sister Julia Ellen WIGHT was b. 23 Apr 1852 in Belvidere, IL. They were 2 of 10 children born to this couple including, James; John Aiken; Nathan Jenkins; Margaret; Gilbert Aiken; Emma Jane; Maria; Mary Emiline; Julia Ellen; and Rhoda Melissa WIGHT all born between 1833 and 1855. Julia married John SNELL on 29 Nov 1884 in Boone, IA and she died in 1926 and is buried in the Logan Park Cemetery in Sioux City, IA

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.
I am hoping to locate someone from this WIGHT Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. --Shelley Cardiel
