Written on back of the card, the men are listed L-R: 
1st Row:  Chas. Petty, Raymone "Stemmy" Stamets, Wm. "Bill" Mellick
2nd Row:  Chas. "Sim" Bosenbary, ? Lark, ? Mooseberger, Louis "Chris" Creveling, Frank Hoffman
Back Row:  Edgar "Holly" Roseberry, Henry "Bunn" Andreson, Geo. "Sherrif" Oakes, Wm. "Doc" Little

Craig Hoffman writes, "My grandfather, Frank Hoffman - right end of 2nd row - was born in 1884, so I'd guess this was about 1910.  The picture was taken on the steps of the Bloomsbury Public School.  Photo taken by Francis T. Stamets."

About this same picture, Louis Creveling (current genealogist for the Creveling family) writes, "This was my father when he still lived at home in Bloomsbury where he was born in 1892.  I think the picture was probably taken about the time of the 1st World War, ca. 1914."  "Behind my father is Dr. William Darlington Little, my father's uncle.  Both my father and Dr. Little attended Lafayette College in Easton, PA...."  "Dr. Little was a professor at Lafayette and never married.  He lived most of his life in Bloomsbury."

I'd love to hear from anyone who knows more about the men in this great photo.  Jan Reuther
