One Step Beyond didn't have it completely right.
31 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

The story maybe factual but the show adds their version. The portrait looks many decades more than 40. 1860-1902 means he died at 41 or 42. The painting done well before after he retired as a Capt. and built the house. He looks closer to 68-80.
