Standing on the corner, holding his hat, and spending time with his wife while having the photo taken. The photo comes from a big velvet photo album that was rescued from a rundown house in Osceola, Iowa.
A young man sports a great mustache in a photo taken at the same photographers.
So this is not the same guy and he is older. The thing that I find fascinating is that it may be the same kind of tie. The attached earlobe of this guy makes him not related to the guy above him. The above guy could have married into the family of this family. I don't know if I will ever know.
I have lost my way from men with facial hair. I will stop with this guy with his wife. I do think he is the same guy as the first two photos at the top as his mustache and beard are so similar and this photo too was from the same album. Judging from the age of the house in which this album was rescued, I think the time could be in the late 1800's. There was one calling card with a woman's name of Jackson. I know that it is a long shot as the woman could be a sister to the women in the picture or a sister of the guy with the beard. I have yet to get to a web site to find out this family's name and the history of the people who lived there. I see on other web sites that people like to use findagrave.com in this country and one can find out a lot about people by searching through the records of all those buried in cemeteries. I need to take one of the names from the album and seek out those buried in the Osceola cemetery.
