This is an interesting tintype in a carte de visite mount.
The image shows a Union soldier wearing a standard four button sack coat with large military buttons.
The photographer is out of Adrian, Michigan. In period ink at the top (photo #4) is what would appear to be an identification of "Warin Lent".
The name was probably added by a friend who received the photograph. His spelling is lacking as I would think that the soldier is actually "Warren". I have tried to decipher the who and have been stumped. I have tried both "Lent" and "Sent" and variations such as "Lents", "Lentz", "Lint", .... but haven't found any soldier that seems to fit.
The closest that I can find is a soldier named "Warren Clemens" who enlisted in Adrian, Michigan.
Any genealogy experts out there? Any and all help is welcome!
THANKS in advance!
