Oldest Family Photo . . . Updated

This one is of Jonathan Waterbury (b. 1766 d. 1825) and Sarah "Sally" Travis (b. 1770 d. 1857). Its from a book called Jonathan Waterbury Genealogy. At the page facing 128, there is this photo:

Quite a handsome couple, eh? Old as it is, though, it still doesn't predate the photo of my wife's 6th Great Grandmother, Rebecca Machado.
