Cabinet photograph of a young man identified as William G. Powers. The photograph was taken at teh studio of A. & G. Taylor of 535 Washington Street, Boston, Massachusetts.
William may have been the William G. Powers, a New York native, who married Hattie Gray of Boston, in Boston on 22 January 1881. Williams's parents were shown on the marriage record as Richard and Mary Powers; Hattie's parents were shown as Samuel and Mary Gray.
And possibly, the William G. Powers, born about 1859, who died on 26 January, 1904, son of Richard Powers and Mary (Gleason) Powers.
If you have a theory as to the identity of William G. Powers and Hattie Gray, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
