In this photo, John Dickinson and his brother, William H. Dickinson stand with their cousin, Joe Proctor - a son of of Mary Ann:

This photo is labeled "Uncle and Aunty and Harry Dickinson". It appears to be Harry's sister, Mary Ann and either her husband, Samuel Lewis, or their brother William, at left.

This photo resembles Mary Ann as well. It is unmarked, from the collections of the late Robert J. Dickinson. If this was her, was the man her first husband, Joseph Proctor?
