This is the back of the photo.  I think it says:
Edwinea Eckfeld Born May 18 1907 Age 6 years ( The photo must have been taken in 1913)
Daughter of Della Lehman, a cousin  Grandmother Strehlow’s sisters daughter.
There is a mark on the front of the photograph, I am unable to read it.

HHW something..I wonder if the photographer signed his photos in pencil.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

On a side note..I featured Photo Number 134 of Eugenia Strehlow Meilicke and her family..do you suppose her Mother was Grandmother Strehlow?  Just a thought, I did get the photos at the same antique shop??

Update from Iggy:
Edwinea Eckfeld was born on May 18 1907 in Columbia Township, Tuscola County, Michigan and died on 28 Feb 1996 in Port Huron, St. Clair County, Michigan. She was married to Floyd Thomas King (28 Jan 1908-16 Jul 1973).

She attended the Central State Teachers College (Class of 1929) and published "A study of the critical ideas of Sir Thomas Elyot" in 1932.

"In the regular 8th grade examination, Edwinea Eckfeld of Unionville received the highest standing of the 481 students who took the examination. Her standing was 96.6 per cent. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Eckfeld and a pupil of Miss Edna Stroud."



More from Iggy:
On Oct. 22, 1903, Edwin W. Eckfield (b. 1881 in Michigan) married Adella Lehman (b. 1880 in Wisconsin). The Bride's Parent's Names wer Henry and Mina Lehman (both b. 1838 in Germany) and they were living in Liberty Grove, Door, Wisconsin.


Here is the connection with Photo 134.


Adela Lehman's mother was "Mina Buchold" on a wedding record and "Minnie A Bucholz" in the census records (b. Sep 1837 in Germany)

Eugenia Stehlow's mother was "Liebegott Maria Buchholz" (b. Sep. 5, 1836 in Germany d. Oct. 3, 1901)

I would assume they were sisters.

  3. On Oct. 22, 1903, Edwin W. Eckfield (b. 1881 in Michigan) married Adella Lehman (b. 1880 in Wisconsin). The Bride's Parent's Names wer Henry and Mina Lehman (both b. 1838 in Germany) and they were living in Liberty Grove, Door, Wisconsin.

    So if I read the "grandmother's sister" thing correctly, she may have been one of Adella's sisters...

    Unfortunately, the US census data is only available for 1880 and 1900 - so this family kind of falls through the cracks. With only Adella living with her parents in 1900. She (at 3 months) and a sister named Lydae (b. 1863) were with the family in 1880.

    The story seems to be that Lehmans homesteaded between Nov 02, 1889 and Sep 23, 1894 in South Dakota and returned then returned WI.

  4. Excuse me - my mistake.

    "The story seems to be that Lehmans homesteaded between Nov 02, 1889 and Sep 23, 1894 in South Dakota and returned then returned WI."

    is incorrect. It refers to different Lehman family.

    Adela Lahman's father Henry was a minister in Watertown and Victor Michigan.

  6. There is the connection..great work Iggy! The family I returned the Meilicke Photos to were on the Meilicke side not the Strehlow side..so I guess we will wait for some relatives of the Strehlow's to come along someday:)

  7. There was a photographer named H. H. Weldy from Fort Wayne, Indiana, so perhaps this is the same person. You can see the listing here in Google books:

    1. Good find. HH Weldy is also what I read.

      For the search engines to bring people looking here, the text there reads:
      "H. H. Weldy of Forty Wayne Indiana has bought the Miller Studio from in Caro Michigan from R. E. Greene" from the Bulletin of photography, Volume 12 - January 1 to June 25, 1913
