Please note the following information from another collector. I believe I have figured out who one of your soldiers is.The etching on the back of the tintype that I can read says, P W Kenyon - Downs, Ka(Kansas). I think the soldier on the right is Potter W. Kenyon, company E, 118th New York Infantry. After the war, Kenyon lived in Osbourne County, Kansas, in or near Downs. He was a member or GAR Post #232 in Downs.
He was born in 1835 and died in 1914. The item "Ca 1860's CIVIL WAR 1/4 SIZE PLATE TINTYPE ARMED UNION SOLDIERS withPARTIAL ID" is in sale since Monday, March 07, 2016.
