From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: Is this Napoleon Bonaparte Cook?





This is one of those tintypes I scanned, but never thought it would be identified. When looking at yesterday's post of the Cook/Porter family, I recognized Napoleon Bonaparte Cook as a possible match to this tintype. Same nose, hairline, high forehead, and similar facial hair. 

What do you think?
