I found a photo that says it was taken at a prison in the Philippine Islands. My ancestor's life story never mentions being captured and the group looks well dressed so I assume they were guards, not inmates. The photo doesn't say which prison or its exact location. The full names of the sergeants and corporals are listed and the names match those in the roster I gave in the previous message. Plus there are a couple of additional names. I think this proves the previous roster was indeed from the war in the Philippines.

The full names are:
1st Sgt Engelhard Endres
Sgt Gottlieb D. Schlewing
Cpl George A. Law
Cpl Marion L. Patrick
Cpl L. A. Guest (can't make out the rest of the first name)
Cpl Matthew J. Day
Cpl Henry Smith
Cpl Ernest Norman
Cpl George Murray (not sure of initial, F? or I?)
Cpl Oscar M. Hubbs
Cpl George B. Koehler
Cpl Karl R. Seidel
