Mystery Photo... Southern Minnesota tintype

Among many unidentified tin types that came from an album I inherited a few years ago....

The album belonged to Lena Sophia (Nelson) Gisleson Torry, a daughter of Ole Nelson & Mary Rosetta Grinolds.... and younger sister to my Great-Great Grandfather John C. Nelson.

Lena's son Walter had the album and it eventually found its way to a cousin of his... who then passed it on to me.

I presume these two men are somehow connected to the Grinolds family... they probably lived in either the Juneau Co, Wisconsin or Freeborn Co, MN areas.

And hopefully someday, their identities will be known!
