Pictures from the Past Possibly Ramsey or Stone Family

 I have no information on this man other than that it was taken on a tintype.  This process of photography was used between 1856 and 1940, but mainly during the nineteenth century.

The Photography studio for the above young ladies picture was C.R. & A. H. Blunt located in Danville, Va.  I have been searching for a date for the picture.  I already found where the photographer A. H. Blunt committed suicide on June 13, 1912. They also said that he was a photographer in Danville, Va.  I found that in the Magazine Bulletin of Photography Volume 11.
 This picture was taken by the Edwards Excelior Photograph Gallery  804 Main Street Lynchburg, VA.  By the fashion of his clothes I would say this was taken during the 1880s.
Someone kindly wrote this fellow's name on the back of the picture.  His name is Samuel Stone.  They also said that he was Aunt Chappies' youngest brother.  Oldest brothers were Eddie Stone, Jimmy Stone, Clack Stone.  This was also taken by A. H. Blunt.

About a month ago my brother gave me these pictures.  His mother in law gave them to him.  I don't know the exact particulars, but they supposedly are people that have a relation to the Ramseys or the Bennetts of Pittsylvania County, Virginia.  Above are the first four photos.  As before, if anyone has any idea about the relationship of these people, please write.  There was a Clack Stone in the that had a brother named Jimmy.  They served in the Civil War and someone used this Stone to apply to be in the SAR.
