Perhaps this solves the mystery. The available data are very incomplete and sometimes contradictory. I managed to unravel the followings.
松洞之龜城老人 - Shōdō no Kijō-rōjin - Old Man of Turtle Castle from Shōdō
奥陽宗古 - Okuyō Sōko
原清 - Genshin or Hara Kiyoshi ?
Imscription on box,
龜城老人之圖 - Painted by the Old Man of Turtle Castle
盤渓之賛 - Approbation by Bankei
Seemingly, Itō Sōko 伊藤宗古 (Upper seal)
(Okuyō 奥陽 denotes his native land, the Tōhoku region, Shōyō is his art-name, Old Man of the Turtle Castle is his pseudonym))
His year of birth and death unknown.
a.k.a. Itō Kijō (Turtle Castle) 1st. gen. 伊藤龜城
He was one of the disciples of Matsuura Shōdō 松浦松洞 1837-1862
Itō Sōko's son was Itō Kijō （2nd gen.) 伊藤龜城
