From David S. Raese:                            June 2006
"These two "carte-de-viste" photos, made circa 1870, are unusual since they are photographic copies of older pictures.  Notice both subjects are holding the same book, thus the originals are possibly photographs, ca.1860 Ambrotues as evidenced by the light background (Daguerreotypes are dark). One or both subjects were deceased by 1870.  These photos are found side-by-side in the Amsden-Lauck family album.  The subjects appear to be about 55 years old.  Regrettably, there is no clear resemblance to other family, by either the male or female.  Assigning a tentative identity is difficult.  If these are copies of drawings/paintings, could they be of Rev. Ezra Grover & Hannah (Jenkins) Grover: (probably!)"
 If you have a clue to their identity, PLEASE contact me.
