The vignette style of composition was common in the 1880's-90's. I would suggest this is 1880's & probably mid-late decade.

Interesting - thank you! Do you think then that the original photo I posted of Richard Hill could be the same timeframe then - 1880s-1890s? Not sure how old you think he looks in that photo?

The style of lettering is typical 1870's but could be into the 80's. He looks quite young & in his 30's I would think so would have to have been taken around 1875. If the cardstock has rounded corners it would be later.
This would age the old gent in his 60's & he looks a lot older than that to me.

With that said, here is a later picture of George, without his beard. What year do you think this could be from? Is it possible that this picture style could be the same time as Richard's or do you not think so?

In comparison, here is a photo of Richard's son here - with the photographer information. I don't know if this photo was taken at the same time as Richard's or if it was later on. His son George, pictured here, died in 1895 at the age of 52.

That is the entire photo. Nothing written on it, just shown as is. He died in 1900 so that's a pretty good range of dates you gave.

Don't really know his age here but judging his hair on his head....maybe 65? 70? That would put the date of photo taken between 1878 and 1883.

Hi,

Could you please date this photo of my 3x great grandfather, Richard Hill? He was born circa 1813 in Yorkshire, England. He immigrated to the US in 1841 on the Barque Hope, and settled in Indiana in 1843.

Thank you!

Hi again all,

Not sure which one of my posts is live, but I decided to post here. Attached you will find Richard Hill's naturalization papers. Woohoo! It looks like it's from 1844, saying Richard was "about 30 years old" which could make his birthdate 1813 which is what it is on the Barque Hope ship manifest and the bio from the county he lived in.

Is anyone able to check the Dent parish records for a Richard Hill born in 1813?

Thank you!
Stephanie

Hi all,

So Andy from the Dent Parish Council sent a note back to me. Would anyone be willing to do this for me who has the access or lives in the area?

The church records for the period to which you refer are held at the Kendal Record Office. The normal procedure is to obtain a reader's ticket from the Records staff and asked to be guided to the catalogue for the Dent Archive. You can then ask the archivist to show the records that exist. 

Thanks in advance!!

Please reference related post http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=743082.0 as I posted on each Yorkshire board in the hopes that someone would be able to  help since i didn't have a town of birth for my ancestors, just that it was in Yorkshire.
