Thanks for stopping by.

From Jimmie Dee:
Emma Kickbush  Born Unknown  Died 1948   Riverside Cemetery Menominie Michigan


From Jacqi:
There is a 1910 census record for an Emma Kickbush living in Little Valley, Cattaraugus County in New York, with her husband's name listed as Gustave A. Kickbush. They were married for eight years at that point. Gustave was a German immigrant, arriving in New York in 1878.

The couple can also be found in the same town in the 1930 census.

Also in Gustave's household (in the 1910 census only) was Gustave's stepdaughter, Flossie Olmstead. Eighteen years old and born in New York, she was listed as single at the time.

Emma's record in that 1910 census showed her as mother of two children, only one of whom was still surviving.

  1. Could the studio imprint be Whitney?

  3. I just love that website Jimmie Dee just posted from. The Fulton History website is great for newspapers--and not just from New York!

    I am wondering if this is Emma's second marriage. There is a 1910 census record for an Emma Kickbush living in Little Valley, Cattaraugus County in New York, with her husband's name listed as Gustave A. Kickbush. They were married for eight years at that point. Gustave was a German immigrant, arriving in New York in 1878.

    The couple can also be found in the same town in the 1930 census.

    Also in Gustave's household (in the 1910 census only) was Gustave's stepdaughter, Flossie Olmstead. Eighteen years old and born in New York, she was listed as single at the time.

    Emma's record in that 1910 census showed her as mother of two children, only one of whom was still surviving.

    So...I suppose the chase is now on for Flossie's descendants???

  4. About that photographer's mark: if it is actually a raised imprint, what about taking a thin piece of paper and a pencil and making a tracing of it, much the same as you would do a rubbing of an old headstone?
