John Henderson Bowen photo

John H. Bowen photograph - 
presumed to be John Henderson Bowen 1822-1881, 
son of William and Martha Bowen.  

This digital image was shared with me by Mary Spivey, a descendant of William Bowen and Rebecca Wesson.  Since John died in 1881, the original photograph was likely a tintype.  Note the pink tinted cheeks... something often found on these old photos.
