The photo is dated 1892  - see the url link

I always thought the date of 1880 might not be correct as this had been added at a later date, so the link you sent was very helpful and I guess that 1890's is more accurate after comparing the outfits of both women.  Haven't been able to find a death certificate for her, or re-marriage.  In fact, if the photo was taken in 1890's that would make her around 78 years old and I don't think the woman in this photo looks that old. 
Many thanks for everyone's input.
