This picture circulated on an email list a few years ago. The young woman is purported to be Martha Bull’s sister, Rebecca Hogan Bull.  Rebecca was 4 years younger than Martha. It’s said she was born in Georgia 18 Jun 1826 and died in Falls County, Texas 10 Dec 1905. I have yet to find her place of burial.

Looks to me like she had beautiful brown eyes and dark hair. Since I have never seen a picture of Martha (my ggg-grandmother), I like to look at it and think that maybe the sisters looked very much alike.
