His Image, Gem Tintype, Circa 1868

This tiny, 1-inch tall image, like this one: www.flickr.com/photos/60861613@N00/7264265910/in/photostr... and this one: www.flickr.com/photos/60861613@N00/7264031824/in/photostr..., originated in the same album and seem to show three women in mourning--possibly sisters (although the woman with the flowers in her bonnet may be a spouse). The departed they are commemorating is almost certainly the man in the photo brooch worn by this woman. My guess is that he is their brother.
