Photo of French immigrant Hypolite Manier.  The photo is believed to date to the 1860s.  He is standing in front of the log cabin he built in the wilds of Indiana.  He obviously dressed up and is standing with some prized possessions.  Note the saddle on the ox (could you ride those things?).  The gun has been dated to an 1860s model; his foot is resting on a deer he must have recently killed.

This is a neat photo. I didn't completely notice the deer, which is actually perfectly fine with me because don't really care for photo's of people posing with the animals they hunted, I noticed the gun but could have never dated it so kuddos to you. May I also say I love his first name.
