There was no date on this photo but his outfit looks like it's from the late 1700s?

Definitely NOT 1700s. Probably a daguerreotype, 1840s or '50s. No photography prior to 1839.

Of course not 1700's - no photos then. Just commenting on the fashion. :)

I wonder their age. Could be late 30’s even though they look much older. Could be a minister and his wife as he may be holding a bible.

Barbara Langel Feinblatt, Quakers didn’t have ministers as we think of them. Anyone, including women could speak at meetings, although some Quakers were known to be skilled preachers.

I read up on Quakers a few years ago when researching my family tree on Ancestry.com after I discovered that I have 3 lines of Quakers on my tree--the Fitzrandolphs, the Capens & the Hannums. I started out by reading Wikipedia, then I read a book or two, but don’t remember the names.

So Joel (the man in the photo) was born in 1795? That would fit . . . he would be late 40s or so?

Barbara Langel Feinblatt
Yes I guess I was wrong about their age. Late 40’s seems about right.

There are two people with those names who lived 1795-1858 (Joel) and (1791-1861) Rachel, listed on the linked page as the parents of Mary Elizabeth Hutchins. If it's them, I'd agree with Charles - the picture was probably taken in the 1840s or even 50s.

He looks deceased, maybe a post mortem photo? She seems to be holding him up with her arm and she has a very sad expression.

It’s not one of those Victorian era postmortem photos. They exist, but most of the pictures people claim are postmortem aren’t. General rule, if the person is standing or sitting up and their eyes are open, they were alive when the picture was taken.

I think he is deceased or very ill. His hands look fixed. His fingers are clubbed. Lung cancer?

Todd Garrison I've seen many post mortem photos with deceased children or adults with their eyes still open. They tried to make the deceased look as normal as possible for their last family photo together before the funeral.

He was a business man and educated as indicated by having a book on his lap. His wife was industrious as signified by her needlework sitting on her lap.

Just read about this couple on Ancestry.com. They were Quakers, lived in Ohio, then moved to Iowa. Interesting people!

Nola Schieferstein-Rains I have 3 lines of Quakers in my family, so I bet some of my ancestors looked like this. Some of them moved from Ohio to Indiana.

Not a lot of detail on her clothing, but from the waistline and what I can see of the shape, I'm guessing 1840s or so. Pre-hoop-skirt, but waistline at a natural level.

1700s is too early. His trousers are full-length, not knee breeches. To me his neck scarf is from the early 19th C., so I’d say about 1840.

I would say right about 1850. Based on their ages, the cut of his suit, what we can see of her clothing.

They could be plain folk, Quakers or Mennonites. Their clothing would be similar, especially her bonnet.

And according to findagrave, this would have had to been taken sometime in early 1858 or before that, 1858 is the year that Joel Hutchin died.

Joanne Latham Jacobellis I agree about his hands too. They are similar to the hands of Amish farm workers I've seen in Indiana--wide & perhaps muscular, or swollen.

Photography wasn't invented till maybe the 1840's and became more complex by 1860's. This pic is from that time approximately.
