1876 photo of Hanley P. Cogswell

I recently purchased the subject studio portrait of a young man taken by A. N. Hardy, Boston, MA. It is identified on the back of the mount in period handwriting:

"H. P. Cogswell
May 1876"

I am guessing that this is Hanley P. Cogswell. I found him listed in the 1900 and 1910 Census data for Borough of Brooklyn (resided at 613 47th Street), Kings Co., NY. He is also listed in Lain's Brooklyn Directory for 1888 (resided 53rd Street n. 3rd Avenue) and 1897 (resided at 151 53rd Street). He is also included in some ship passenger lists as follows:

--Ship "Cleopatra" leaving from Annapolis, Nova Scotia, and arriving Boston, MA on 10 Dec 1883

--Ship "Kensington" leaving Liverpool, England, and arriving Philadelphia, PA on 31 Mar 1895

--Ship "Ohio" leaving Liverpool, England, and arriving Philadelphia, PA on 14 Apr 1895

--Ship "New York" leaving Southampton, England, and arriving New York, NY on 17 Nov 1896

He is mentioned in "The People of Western Kings 1785 to 1901," available online.

Hanley P. Cogswell, a master mariner, ship captain, and carsman, was born Dec 1843 in Canada (immigrated 1880-1885). On 29 Jan 1866, he married Lavenia Gates. Their daughter, Blanche Cogswell, was born 1868. Their son, Edward D. Cogswell, born Apr 1875 in Canada, married Alice M. (maiden name unknown), born about 1876 in PA. Edward was a machinist/New York City employee.
