The clothing appears to me to be consistent with a date between the end of the civil war and your relatives death.

He is wearing a frock coat, although of shorter than average length and has a derby hat. Both of these would be worn at this time. The hat has a taller crown, which is consistent with a date in the 1870s to 1880s.
