Transcription of information written on back of photo:
Marjorie Fritz Ulven's great-aunt
Juanita Breckenridge Bates
Elena[?] Fritz's sister
1983 Ruth Sims talked to a lady and Aunt Juanita was one of the first ministers in N. Y. state! She told how hard it was for a woman to enter into a man's field. Ruth met a lady in Maine from Ithaca, N. Y. who knew of Aunt Juanita & had been written up in their "Journal". Ruth received a booklet from the lady entitled "New York History" and it included letters to & from A. Juanita mostly regarding religious views.
[Believe that the booklet referenced is "New York History: Quarterly Journal of the New York State Historical Association, Volume 55, 1974.]
