Mystery Tintype Photo... Freeborn County, MN

This very interesting tintype is unidentified!

I suspect that the 'lap' the little girl is sitting in, is more of a 'prop'...
so the little girl is probably the relative.

This was in an old photo album that belonged to Lena (Nelson) Giselson Torry,
the daughter of Mary Rosetta (Grinolds) Nelson.
They family was from the Freeborn County, MN area

I think many of the unidentified older photos are of the Grinolds-Schoonover, et al branch

I'd love to know who the little girl is and even of more interest is the interesting character she is photographed with!
