Mystery Photo MP001

This is most likely the oldest photograph in my collection. It is a tintype and to me it appears to be around the 1880s. I have no idea who it is, if he is a family member or if he is part of my maternal grandmother or grandfather's line. He features also don't resemble anyone I know of.

The only other tintype in my collection is of my maternal great grandmother Roxie Hughes 1876-1961.  It could be from the same time period but so far there is no way to know if they are related.
