I purchased the subject undated studio portrait of a young woman taken by B. F. Battels, Akron, OH. It is identified on the back of the mount in period handwriting:
The second letter in the given name actually resembles a "u" but I can find no June Orcutt in the Census data as a likely candidate for the subject. I purchased the photo along with related ones, including a circa 1860s portrait of George Orcutt, who married to Martha Jane More (both bear handwriting by the same person). Therefore, I conclude that the second letter in the given name is "a" that is left open at the top. Perhaps Mrs. George Orcutt went by her middle name.
Contact me if you wish to view and/or acquire this photo.
