    Aunt Caroline Dye was a famous Hoodoo woman who lived in Newport, Arkansas. She was a spiritualist, as well as a rootworker, because the crudely sketched aura around her head and the winged, dog-headed figure with its hand or paw on her right shoulder were, like her name, drawn on the film negative---indicating that she maintained contact with otherworldly spirits. The standing figure may represent a "spirit guide" or the Devil's black dog one meets at crossroads.

Neither story completely fits the evidence, however… In any case, from this photo one can infer something else—Aunt Caroline Dye was a spiritualist as well as a root worker, for the crudely sketched aura around her head

Cora Lodencia Veronica Hatch Scott (1840–1923) was one of the best-known mediums of the Spiritualism movement of the last half of the 19th century. Most of her work was done as a trance lecturer, though she also wrote some books whose composition was attributed to spirit guides rather than her own personality.
