This picture was taken 2-2-1862 in Tinela , Alabama.
I'm not absolutely sure which Tom McCants this is , but it is either
the brother or father of my great-great-grandmother, Mellison Amarintha
McCants . The brother was killed in July 1862 at age 21, and the father
(my great-great-great-grandfather) was 53.
I tend to believe the Tom pictured was the 53 rather than the 21.
What do you think ?
