Unidentified Portaits in Collection of Mary Jane HESS
- A possible early portrait of Simon William HESS (or possibly his brother Jacob). Simon and Jacob were the only brothers old enough to register for the civil war. Jacob served, but Simon has yet to be found in the civil war register.
- A duplicate of the civil war portrait of Simon William HESS, with color added.
- An early portrait of Elizabeth CALLAHAN, although not confirmed. The estimated date of this photo, and her remarkable resemblance to Jennifer Grace HAHN, and relatives, suggests this is her. Dates from 1869-1871.
- An edited version of the early portrait of Elizabeth CALLAHAN.
- A later portrait of Elizabeth CALLAHAN, confirmed by Joan Mary HAHN, per her grandmother, Mary Jane HESS. Dates from 1860-1868.
