I copied these reference book titles off the Internet, if you check with a library for these books, they may contain a picture of Lady "May" Francis Hope. In Pennsylvania there is an inter-library loan program, Access-PA, where one can borrow books from any library in the state.

I also saw a listing for their picture together in a newspaper archive kept at a university library in Philadelphia, I had a crash of sorts and lost the url for that listing. I think it was at the Temple University library. I believe newspaper archives are your best source, because they were newsmakers of their day.
