I agree with Lesley, there is another image on this site for a "Hocton, Mrs Ellen" who is a very different lady. This above lady is the same lady as in the photo labelled "William and Emily Hocton with baby Roseanna". The hint is in the chin.

Sorry but I don't agree that this is Ellen Snook, as there are many other images in existence of Ellen that don't match. I do think this is Ellen's daughter in law Emily Hocton - wife of William Rawlings Hocton and mother of Roseanna Hocton. William was son of Jennifer Rowling (later Hocton) so was Appo's step-son from his first wife. William took Appo's name and was raised as his child of Appo after Jennifer died and Appo remarried Ellen Snook.

This is my Great-Grandmother Ellen Hocton, maiden name Snook.
