    This photo was taken in front of a dry good store in the early 1900's (*). The I.O.O.F. met in the upstairs section of the building. Members are:
    Front row [L-R]: Ned Webber, Dick Jackson, W.T. Black, Lee Asher, Thomas Kepler, W.J. Black, James Mathis, and Samuel Null.
    Row 2: Isham Mathis, Felix Mathis, Joseph Mace, Pink Eaves, Monroe Dunham, Jerry Hanrahan, Amos Collier, and Dr. Samuel F. Arthur.
    Row 3: Charles Lamar, J.P. McManus, Jerome Davidson, Carroll Black, Abraham Mathis, Charlie Brookshire, Jefferson Jackson, Samuel Widener, and Thomas Hanrahan

    * The early 1900s is questionable, since Amos Collier is noted to be in this picture, and he died in 1882.
