    James Brothers: Cased Ambrotype of Miss Lizzie Wathers, Elkton, Todd County, Kentucky. A sixth-plate Ambrotype of an attractive young woman, identified on the verso as "Miss Lizzie Wathers / Elkton / Todd County / Kentucky". This image is from the estate of Forster Barr, Jesse James grandson. Elkton is about 16 miles west of Russellville, Kentucky, where on March 20, 1868 a bank was robbed, in which the James brothers may have played a peripheral role. The image exhibits some flaking to the emulsion and the case is lacking the lid, otherwise in is in good condition.
