Copeland, Finney, and Rayl Tintypes

When Ralph Copeland passed away, the Copeland family album revealed some tiny treasures - tintypes. Images of our Copeland/Finney ancestors in miniature. They are a mere 2+ inches of dark images on metal. With the magic of PhotoShop, I was able to scan, lighten, and 'fix' these tintype images. Here they are!
Young Samantha Jane Finney - later married to Abner Copeland

Early Samantha Finney - daughter of Wesley and Mary Matilda (Hinshaw) Finney

This was with Elbert Epps Copeland's photos, but he looks like Daniel Webster Finney. In the old Copeland family photo album, the tintype for DW Finney was missing. So I'm guessing...

Samuel Gilbert (SG) Copeland and Dan (this must be Samantha's younger brother Daniel Webster Finney) 
 You can clearly see Dan marked in the fixed tintype scan.
