|Mrs. Samuel, Jesse James mother, was a friend of my children's great-grandmother, May Hill Clutter. May took this picture of Mrs. Samuel in Kearney, MO in the early 1900's. I found this photograph while going through Grandmother's belongings.|
Grandmother explained to me, before she died, that Mrs. Samuel had a crippled right hand. That is the reason she is hiding it behind her skirt in the photo.
