I've had a copy of this picture in my possession for many years. I believe he is related to Mary Ellen Laney Henkey. I always thought it was L. S. Spriggs, Mary Ellen's grandfather. Then the mustache made me think it could be E. P. Laney, Mary Ellen's father. He was from Kansas and once referred to as a cowboy. For all I know, it could be some famous stage actor from back then. If anyone knows, please tell me.
