I posted this same thing a couple years ago, but since my brother made a trip to Guttannen, Switzerland last month, he acquired a much better photo with some corrections. If anyone is interested I'd be happy to email it. Here are the names in the photo:

Peter Price
Edward Baehler (handwritten note below name says Dachdecker)
Michael Ott
John Rieder
Casper Weibel
Edward Leuthold
John J. Rufibach
Henry Strein
John Deninger
Emil Ott (son of Casper Ott, Sr.)
John Bichler
John Rufibach
Casper Schield
Martin Brock
Casper Ott, Sr. (my gg-grandfather)
Henry Ott
Michael von Bergen
John S. Strein
Mr. Imdorf
John Moore
Alex von Bergen
John von Bergen
John D. von Bergen
Fred Streiner
Harry Nageli
John S. Schield

There is only 1 person who's name is unknown. This photo was published in a local Taylor, PA newspaper in 1914. According to the local historian in Guttannen, some of the names listed in the newspaper article (in PA) were incorrectly identified and are corrected in this new photo.
