Smith Risinger - possible relative in Bracketville, Texas?

I knew a Wesley Risinger from Bracketville, Texas in 1986 (he was probably 15-16 years at that time)...this photo of Smith Risinger looks so much like Wesley, so much that it makes me wonder if this is a distant relative. Thanks for sharing the picture!
