I do not; never seen this. They don't seem very true to life if the third from left in back is Ralph Erskine (I mean true to the portraits I've seen) and a couple of the seated ones could be Ebenezer, but given his senior status of the group I would guess he is center.

There is a portrait of the Founders of the Secession Church at the National Portrait Gallery, London.

Does anyone know which one of the men in the image linked to above is James Fisher?

I have already asked @Backwoods Presbyterian. Does anyone else have an informed opinion on the subject? @Wayne or @NaphtaliPress perhaps?
I have never seen this photo! I have searched and searched with no success for a photo of James Fisher. I will ask Dr. Vandoodewaard if he recognizes any of them as being Fisher.

It has been bugging me as I knew I had seen this photo previously with the individuals named. Alas! Here we are!

When compared to Ed's, the two do not appear to be the same.

I can't even see any similarities between the different pictures. I'm pretty confident that mine are authentic because at the time I did a fair amount of research, but who knows? I think I paid almost $200 for James Fisher from an English broker. As I said, his image is pretty rare.

I am definitely not questioning the authenticity of your photo. I previously
did a little bit of research for a photo of Fisher with no success. Along with Chris, I too question the accuracy of the group photo.
