Here is another photo courtesy of Jonathan Milligan.  We do not know the location of this lumber camp.  However, my relatives in the photo are Constant Bailey (center, third row from top) and Fred Bailey (boy seated far right, front row), who lived in Tioga County at the time.  Fred was born in 1883, so my guess would be that it was taken about 1890.  The second attachment is the reverse of the photo which identifies most of the folks in the picture.  If you happen to learn the exact location, I'd be very interested in knowing.  Thanks.
