Mystery Photos from Nicole Whitesides

The second set of photographs was received from Nicole Whitesides. She sent the following message: These photos were recently developed by my aunt who found the film with my deceased great grandfather's belongings. She gave me copies to see if I could identify them since I'm the family genealogist. I concluded that these are not individuals related to my family and do not know why my great grandfather had this film. From my research I know these photos were taken around 1910 since the Manuel Indermill passed in 1910 and the grave is fresh in the photo. I found that he is buried at Hug Cemetery in Pierron, Illinois, and I found an article that stated he died in a train wreck and was an insurance agent. Also the family trees on Ancesty.com show he is Swedish. The other grave is of Adolph Ablitz who I found was born Oct 1839 in Sweden and died 15 May 1908 in Baden, Illinois. He is buried in Pocahontas, Illinois. All of these pictures came off the same roll of film. Not sure if there is a waterfall near there that resembles the one in the picture. Maybe someone can recognize the large house and then we can find who owned it in 1910 and go from there.
