I found this tin type in a family bible that I have inherited. I know he's a relative, but I don't know exactly who. After taking a closer look at the photo, I noticed the props at his feet. Then after a bit of research I found out that it was a post mortem tin type. Is there a specific reason why these photos were taken? Was there a time frame that these photos were taken? I am trying to identify this man in my family tree and an answer to these questions and any other knowledge about post mortem tin types would be of great value to me!!
