This photo is from the collection owned by the late Mary Virginia Switzer of Fountain County, Indiana. I can't determine the age of the photo; the people look to my untrained eye as belonging to the first half of the nineteenth century. It's also difficult to gauge the age of the subjects. Are they in their 40s? 50s? Older than that? Does the woman appear to be younger than the man?
I wonder if they are David White, Sr. (ca. 1777-1851) and his second wife Jane (1799-1858). I can't say for certain that the woman looks 20 years younger than the man.
It would help in dating the photo to know when Hayes' Gallery and Short's Block existed. It'd also help to be able to date the style of clothing they're wearing. Can anyone help?
