Reasons for suggested date: Nebraska became a state in March, 1867; at least one carte de visite bearing Eaton’s imprint is the same as a photo copied by Shildler, Washington DC, 1869.
Negative 56,019 (same photo) source has printed label on reverse credited to C.R. Savage, Salt Lake City, Utah. Possibly Savage copied from an earlier photograph
