It's from p. 144 of Ted Nottingham's Curse of Cain. I should add, however, that I am a non-believer in the story Nottingham presents.

Here's another photo of her from p. 144 of Nottingham's book:

And, that's all that needs to be said! Pardon the sarcasm, but I am not a fan of that particular book.

To give the other side of the story to the theme of Nottingham's book claiming that Booth and Mills married and produced at least one child (maybe a second one after Booth escaped from Garrett's barn...), you might try to find a copy of The Elusive Booths of Burrellville, authored by two researchers who were members of the Surratt Society. It is probably out of print because it dates to about 1980. These two ladies picked up on the Izola Forrester story in This One Mad Act and, being from the Northeast, decided to track down everything they could find on record. They found absolutely nothing to support it.

At the time, James O. Hall was working with Forrester's descendants to try and determine the story's veracity The last that I was in on, at least some of the folks closest in blood to Forrester had serious doubts about the story also. Then came Ted Nottingham...
