From the documents, it appears that Lykirgus Kendal was a photographer between 1900 and 1910 and then again between 1927 and 1936 but he may well have done photo studio work as a sideline while he called himself a clergyman or evangelist in other records. Since Washington, IN, is just a short way from Patoka Pike, IN, it’s a good guess that this cabinet card was finished early on, around 1900.
