Who Are You?

Here are two of my saddest family treasures -- at least for the time being they are sad.  Two tintypes of two of my ancestors circa the Civil War.  Why so sad?  I don't know who they are.  After my years of family history research I have a good idea who they could be, and a very great hope one of them is my g-g-grandfather Henry Martin Walker, Sr., who died while serving in the Union Army.

So in the next week or so, I will be packaging them up and sending them to an expert to get cleaned and restored.  Then I will take a super-high resolution scan to a photo identification expert to see what clues he or she might be able to pick out to aid my investigation.
