Richard M. and Emma Upjohn

These 1850s pendant Portraits of Richard Michell Upjohn (1828 - 1903) and Emma Degan Tying Upjohn (1836 - 1901) hang in the Octagon House in Washington, DC.

"Richard M. Upjohn (1828-1903) was a prominent American architect and a co­founder of the American Institute of Architects in 1857. Though most famous as an architect of churches (many of which survive today and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places), his designs also include the Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford" -- AIA

Wikipedia gives us this photo of the Connecticut State Capitol designed by Richard M. Upjohn.
