I recently purchased the subject studio portrait of a young woman taken by Dereich, Lyons, NY. It is identified on the back of the mount:

"Ella Winchell 1887"

The only likely candidate for this individual that I can find is a person included in a public member tree posted on ancestry.com, namely Ella L. Winchell, born about 1865 in NY, married in 1889 to Charles W. Oaks, born about 1864 in WI, died 1938. The couple had two children: Seth C. Oaks, born about 1894 in NY, and Charles Kenneth Oaks, born about 1902 in NY. The family is listed in the 1920 Census data for Rose Township, North Rose (resided on Main Street South), Wayne Co., NY.
