Man born in 1746 photographed? - NOT amateur radio

This photo appeared as a Facebook memory today. It is supposed to be of a man born in 1746.

If he's born at this date and now 80 years old which he looks then that would put the year of the photo at 1826. Photography at that time had just come into existence so that photo could be real.

I agree. A Google search did not show this photo. This would have to be at least in the 1840s, which means he has to be in his 90s.
