This picture shows John Geiger (rear), Nevin Korns & John Korns. Nevin Korns was the son of John Wilson Korns of Southampton Township, Somerset County, PA. The John Korns that is pictured is probably Nevin's brother. According to the book "The Genealogy of Michael Korns, Sr. of Somerset County Pennsylvania", Nevin married Anna Longanecker and had three children, and John married Kathryn Martz, had two children and died in 1930.
My mother Estalene (Korns) Dietle (daughter of Allen Korns, niece of Nevin Korns) told me that Nevin Korns worked for the railroad, where he made improvements to train braking sytems. If I remember correctly-and I may not- my first cousin W.L. Korns told me that John Korns died in a mining accident.
