I think the above young gentleman is John Barton Montgomery Sr. who was born in KY in May 1887 and died in IN on 8 March 1951. He was variously known as John, Bart, and a combination of these two. He had a son whose name was John Barton Montgomery Jr. (1926-2009) according to what is written on his tombstone.
“Bart” married Heathy E. Mitchell in September 1916, and they had four sons and two daughters.
If you’re a member of this family and would like more information, just give me a holler.
I purchased this photograph during Thanksgiving week 2015 at Sturgis Antiques on The Avenue in Hampden, Baltimore, MD.
***Update on 28 March 2016*** Today I heard from some of John’s grandchildren who live in Georgia and I mailed them the photograph this afternoon.
Here is J. H. Gladfelter. I was unable to pin him down to an specific person.

Here is James A. Carman of Baltimore, MD. There are several possible matches in the 1880’s, a carpenter, a clerk/book keeper, and others, but it is impossible to tell which he is without a little more information.
I paid $3 for this at Sturgis Antiques on The Avenue in Hampden, Baltimore.
There are too many G. W. Sheridan’s in Baltimore circa 1889. The date is a reference because I know that J.D. Ernsberger’s business was active at this address in 1889.
One of them is George Washington Sheridan who was a “preacher of the gospel” and is buried a couple of blocks from me in St. Mary’s Episcopal Cemetery along side his wife, Rose.
