This appears to be a painting of Becke Tönjes born 1727 who married Cord Siems. The occupation of Becke Tönjes husband, Cord Siems was recorded as a Hausmann which would likely mean that they lived in a very small house on someone else's land and that they would have been quite poor. I would like to connect to the person who added this photo originally and ask questions about how they obtained the photo, etc. I have questions as to the authenticity of this being Becke Tönjes.
I would like to know who has the original photo and the history behind it. I do not know when Johann Siems died. He was born in 1766. My estimate is that he was about 40 to 50 years old in this picture which would have been from 1806-1816. The camera was not invented until about 1828. The picture does not appear to be a painting. I have questions about this picture.
