Reeder or Allen family circa 1860-1880's

Reeder or Allen family circa 1860-1880's

I have an old photo album which originally belonged to my gr-great grandmother Abigail (Reeder) Allen which contains many photos from the civil war era. There are a few photo's that dating back to perhaps 1840's and a few into the 1880's. There is a photo of a man in perhaps his early to mid 20's who appears to be bi-racial: Caucasian and FILIPINO. He could be either part of the Allen family or the Reeder family, but I think it is more probable that he is connected on the Reeder side. The photo was taken in Cleveland, OH. Does anyone have any leads on who he could be? Abigail was born in 1825, the daughter of Merrick Reeder & Sarah Wilson. She had 4 sisters: Martha, Jane, Elizabeth and Margaretta; also a brother, Jonathan Merrick Reeder. I believe the man in the photo may have been linked to Margaretta.

Never able to prove it was her, but believe she may have married a John B. Swartz about 1857 or so in Lycoming Co, PA.

I do have the census information and records from a distant Reeder relative, but am still confused. . .we both have the following photo which has been formerly identified as Charles E. Evans and he is definitely neither the same gentleman NOR Filipino, but thank you for your input.
