Thomas Rowan Morrow, my Grandfather's second cousin. He was born in County Down, Ireland in 1881. His brother, Waddell, had emigrated three years earlier to work on a ranch hand near Gleichen, Alberta, Canada and he was going to join him there. My Grandfather, Arba C. Morrow was to meet him at the pier and put him up for a few days till he arranged his travel to Alberta.

Arba Morrow Hi Ellen, I believe you're right, the boy and girl are fraternal twins and the six of them are siblings I've been comparing the two tintypes and the boy on the bench with the girl is in the second photo seated left, he's wearing a different suit but you can see the watch chain that he's wearing in the first photo. The quality of the clothing and the accessories show that this was a fairly well to do family. my guess is that these were taken about 1885 The frizzed bangs on the young ladies was a style made popular by Lillie Langtree about that time. Since you know the state and the last name you could possibly identify these people by searching the 1880 census.

Arba Morrow As you have the exact address you should try a new site called 'what was there' they work with google maps, the site superimposes the old photo over the stree view of the modern site with a fade bar so you can fade back and forth from the old to the new.
