Whitcomb The Lightning Photographer, Kellogg Iowa.
First the Cabinet Card, it has notched edges that were popular from 1894 to 1900.
This gentleman certainly has hair..and a very full beard that comes to two points in the front. I wonder if he was a nervous man and tugged at his beard.
The Photographer: Daniel Whitcomb was known for his fine photographic work in Iowa. He was in Kellogg during 1886 for sure, it is unknown how long he was in Kellogg..after Kellogg he was in Newton.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update From Pamela:
double linear goatee
Update from Becki:
1900 Federal Census of 4 Jan puts Daniel and family in Newton, Iowa. Daniel died after 1920census but before 1930 one. Orlena is a widow in 1930 with son Leon.
