Unknown Trainmen and Funeral

Unknown Trainmen and Funeral

My cousin who lives in of Marysville, Ohio found this among her mother's belongings. Does anyone know some of the men, or who's casket it is.

The sad looking man in the middle of the business-suited men (looks like) my great-grandfather Howard Emerson Bishop from Akron, Ohio. But I have no way of proving it. His wife Margaret Jane Hayman-Bishop died in Florida while the family was there in March 1921, she died April 1, 1921.

How this photo came into the possession of our family is unknown. All living seniors (age 73-83) have no recollection of this photo, nor can they ID any of them men. I've cut 2 photos and put them side by side to check the resemblance of my g-grandfather and the unknown name in the casket photo.
