Kevin:

The back of the photos have very lite pencil marking on them, they are over 100 years old so it's hard to tell. Some were taken in Indiana, I can tell by the monument in background of a photo of Moris A. Jaffe.

Was your ancestor in Battery B ? Field Artillery in Cuba. There are groups of men photographed so he could be in one of them

You can check the rosters by going to

Or by contacting Patrick Mcsherry the owner of the site, I found Patrick to be extremely helpful.
