Photo Help Needed - Two Jacob House

Could it be that these two photos are of the same person taken years apart? Or, could it be of father and son?

They do not look the same to me but they could be related, father-son, uncle-nephew? Are there any dates on the photos?

I think they are father and son. There are no dates on the photos but I can say they were taken some time after 1865 as there was a raised copyright on one of the pages of 1865.

Scott,
Maybe if you ran the photo copies through a photo editor, you might be able to mitigate (lighten) some of the darkness and bring the men's features out a little? Maybe the are tin-type photos if they are that old? I didn't catch where they were from? My brick way is my g gm, Maud Pearl HOUSE-Hinds b. abt 1873, adopted by the HINDS fanily in Woodland TWP, Decature Co., IA.

My House line originally came from Herkimer/Montgomery county in NY. They settled in Jefferson County NY sometime around 1820-1830. I haven't fully developed the line yet but I imagine a family member or two could have migrated east as I have a couple other lines that did the same after 1850 or so.

Hi Scott,

I've been searching for awhile for any HOUSE information. What I do know is very little; none confirmed with documents. With that said, I have a 4xgreat-grandfather named Samuel LISCUM (many variations in spelling!) who married Hannah HOUSE, who also had a sister by the name of Charlotte HOUSE. The area is the same that you mentioned Herkimer/Montgomery county in NY. The Liscum's came from this area as well.
I'm wondering if you're HOUSE connection has any connection with mine?
