Unknown boy from West Virginia

Unknown boy from West Virginia

Photo of unknown boy found in collection of the late Newton and Ella Alton of Parkersburg WV.

Question about the photo?

Hello:

As this photo was in a collection, do you happen to know where the photo was collected? Did the collectors visit Southern West Virginia, possibly Fayette County or Summers County? Was the photo purchased from an antique dealer?

I had a Great Uncle who was born in 1874 and died in 1902. There are simular facial structures to a photo of a known Great Uncle.

Any information is helpful.

Thank you;
Jerry M. Weikle, M.Ed.
