    These are some tintype photos. Some of these pictures are already quite dark (pardon the flash reflection). Not sure of the date and only one face.
    All are my relatives on the "Long" side of my family.

    In the picture with all four pictures. The top right picture is my Great great grandfather Long. The one next to it on the left his him as well (standing) and I'm not sure who the gentleman sitting is. I'm assuming it's either his son (Oscar Leo Long) or his brother.

    I've been trying to do facial matching to some of the non tintype photos. Starting to make some progress. Still a long ways to go.

    Any information you may have about the approximate date would be much appreciated.

    These pictures are part of my family collection's and may not be reproduced in any way. Thank you.

      These are all post Civil War (loose, odd sized images) and appear to be a little later.

      Based on the backdrops and clothing, I would put these in the 1880s- 90s.
