The problem is, the photograph is not of Eleanor M. Ingram, but of one Eleanor M. Moore (1875-1949), an Australian peace activist. The photo appears as the frontispiece to her book, The Quest for Peace as I Have Known It in Australia (1949).
Below is the real Eleanor M. Ingram, author of The Thing from the Lake, along with a photo of her father, lawyer John W. Ingram (1861-1937), with whom Eleanor shows a decided family resemblance.
