Here is an ambrotype photo; the photo is actually a reverse photo on the back of a piece of glass. The photo had a fairly recent handwritten identification with it ("Ebenezer and Olive Marsh Granger"), but based on the photos I already have of Ebenezer and Olive I don't think this identification is correct. Instead I think this is a photo of Marcus L. Marsh and Mariah Melissa Granger Marsh. My reason for thinking this is a comparison to the photos of Marcus and Mariah contributed by Marc Lorrin to the Granger website (http://www.tiptopwebsite.com/websites/index.php?username=len1932&page=1). I believe that Marcus and Mariah are younger in my photo and that this photo was likely taken while they still lived in Iowa. It seems this photo belonged to Ebenezer and Olive Marsh Granger and passed to Willard Alva Granger, staying in my family's Nashua homes until now. I seem to recall from an earlier email you sent that not only is Mariah sister to Ebenezer but Marcus is brother to Olive. It makes sense that Ebenezer and Olive would have a photo of their married siblings.
