I believe that the E. W. Van Wye mentioned is Enoch Wright Van Wye, [born in 1830, son of James Van Wye and Jane Laird. probably in Trumbull County] living at the time of that photograph [1901 if I am correct] in Boynton, Sullivan County, MO. He spent the fall of 1901 visiting his Van Wye relatives in the Trumbull County area and Bartholomew/Jennings Counties in Indiana; where
K[C]atherine Van Wye Hunter [Widow of Jesse Hunter] resided and the picture most likely was taken. She was his paternal aunt. [He did have first cousins with the same name as he, but by the time Katherine was 80 years old in 1901 they were deceased.
He had moved to MO in the early 1850s as a newlywed and the 1901 OH/IN visit back to relatives & his early locations was the first time he had returned. [Per his memior - which I transcribed and posted on the Trumbull County Genweb site some years ago].
