Friday's Photo: Do You Know This Man?

This interesting tintype was sent to me by a descendant of Dorothy Elizabeth Harriet "Dollie" Bryan and Thomas Sumter Wylie.  Dollie was my grandfather's sister and a daughter of Terrell Bryan and Harriet Albritton. Tom Wylie was the son of Samuel K. Wylie and Maria H. McNeil. 

Tintype photographs were used from about 1855 to 1900 and were most popular between 1861 and 1871. 

This could be a Bryan or Wylie family picture. The chances of identifying this person are probably slim, but there is always the possibility that someone will have an identical picture along with a name.
