Friday's Face from the Past: Unknown photo from Appanoose County, Iowa

Over the next several weeks, maybe months, I'll be highlighting some of the pictures I recently found of my grandparents' families from Appanoose County, Iowa.  I hope this will be a place the pictures can be found.

The only clue for this photo is the name of the photographer:  H. E. Link from Centerville, Appanoose County, Iowa.

Any idea?
