1860s ‘uncle’ John Randolph. CDV. Private Collection.

This handsome fellow with the small smile came on a CDV with the beautiful design around the vignette portrait. His name is written in pencil on the back. Was he of the famed Randolph family of Virginia?

I wonder if his bowtie was a patriotic red and white.
