If you are going by the death certificate dates then this photo would have to be taken in 1880s.  The clothes dont tie in wth those dates.  I think it is from 1900 to 1910 wth the man very fashionable style wth his beard cut and hat.  I thought about the look of Andrew Carnegie when I saw the photo.

Hi IndianLisa and welcome to RootsChat, how lovely that photos of your ancestors were found here.
James has been active on here a couple of weeks ago and I'm sure he will be delighted that you have a connection to the people in the photos, but the date is out for the first one, so maybe another family member.  :D

Welcome to Rootchat from me too  :)

I agree with the others. The first photo is 1900s. As Carol says, they must be other relatives.

Add - I have a photo of an elderly relative wearing similar clothes in the 1920s!
