Now, there's a gentleman with a serious beard! Wonder how old that picture is. Do you have any idea on dates?
I will guess 1880 and he looks to be at least 60 years old.
I found the name of the town to be fascinating.As to Mr. E. D. Johnson - hmm. There is an old Johnson family living in Mazo Manie according to the town's historical society. http://www.mazomaniehistory.org/index.phpMaybe they can ID this gent? I found an Erik/Erick Johnson born in 1811 living in the neighborhood that might be him.
