Wow! Just to warn you, you are dealing with someone going strictly from memory - though the mind isn't gone . . . yet. I was a member of this family by marriage. I listened to many stories from my husband's Grandmother, Rebecca Grace Hazen (named after her grandmother Rebecca Hazen)while living on the farm passed down from Nathaniel Hazen in Fombell, PA, Beaver County. The pictures I saw were in an old, beautiful red velvet photo album. I went through the pictures with Grandma and documented names. I remember Mary Bell. She was beautiful, by the way. All on her own, not just in comparison to the other stern women of the day.
I can contact my mother-in-law regarding the picture but am not too sure she would be able to scan it. Maybe she could confirm the name, though. I live in Wisconsin now, so I do not have easy access for a copy:(

I remember that this family of Hazen's mentioned in the "Hazen Family" book (of which Grandma had a copy) listed her Grandfathers of the past being bootleggers (I think from New England). She denied this being the devout Baptist that she was:)

The farm is in North Sewicly Township. That family belonged to the Providence Baptist Church. Was there a last name of Knox? Rebecca Grace Hazen's Grandmother may have been Rebecca Knox Hazen? I'm off to the cemetery of the church.

I'll let you know who I dig up.
