Freeborn County, MN Mystery Photo... Grinolds?

Another old tin type, compliments of Aunt Lena (Nelson) Torry's photo album...

Freeborn County, Minnesota area

Again, I assume these two ladies are somehow connected to the Grinolds or Schoonover family... but their identities are unknown. Likely lived in Freeborn Co, MN or possibly Wisconsin or New York state

Interesting clothing... especially the shawls/wraps, that actually look like some kind of Native American blankets?!

Too bad I'm not an expert on mid-1800 American clothing styles
