The lady is his second wife, Bedora Chesney SPARKS (1858-1928). The picture was taken about 1915. They lived in Siloam Springs at the time, but the picture could have been taken at the home of one of his children in Kansas, Oklahoma, or Arkansas. Bedora was the mother of the three people on the left, back row. His other children were by his first wife, Emily LEACH. James Crane's biography appears in Goodspeed's History
