Gentlemens' Group

A MASCONIC GROUP PHOTO? - Fleischmanns/Clovesville Area?

This is of a group of gentlemen as you can see. The only person in this photo we know is Orville Foster Ballard Sr. (born 1841). He is in the front row, 2nd from the right. The photo was probably taken in the Fleischmanns/Clovesville area as that is where he lived. If anyone can identify anyone else in this photo we would like to know who they are. Unfortuately I don't know when it was taken, only that Orville was born in 1841 and he died in 1922. As you can see from the photo this had to have been taken in his later years so I would assume it would have been in the early 1900's. We do know he belonged to the Masons so we wonder if this could be a photo of them.
