"Agnes Atkinson, Lucy's mother (? Humble)"

Agnes Swainson married Thomas King Atkinson.
Their daughter Mary Lucy Atkinson married Mansfeldt Heron Humble.

Agnes was born around 1826, which would make her 33 in the
photograph. Since she seems much older, I suspect the note is wrong.
Her mother's name was also Agnes, it could possibly be her.
