Benton Carl Before or After His First Marriage

Taken at Feiger & Son Photography Studio, Pomeroy, Meigs County, Ohio.

I believe this to be Benton Carl either before or sometime after his first marriage to Catherine Landaker, because except for the beard, it resembles him so much in their wedding photograph. I believe he either shaved his beard off before the wedding or grew it afterwards, to look older. Rhonda Rice who sent it to me confirmed that someone had taken a black pen and ink and made the beard longer and touched up a scratch in the photograph. She tends to think it is not Benton, and has renamed it CarlMysteryMan.
