Hello John,

Thank you for clarifying which woman pictured is Elizabeth Lowell Hancock (Moriarty) Wood. I have corrected the record to indicate that she is on the left rather than the right.

Many thanks,

In the description it says Moriarity instead of Moriarty. Could you please correct the spelling? Thanks!
