Photo Number 1529

This is a Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.
Yoder CP
The photographer is D.L. ?halley of Berne IND.
This cabinet card was most likely taken about 1895.
Yoder back CP
Aunt Sarah  Mrs. Enoch Yoder
We had a baby named Elda V Yoder a few weeks ago who had her photo taken in Johnstown, PA. That was photo number 1515.  They are probably not related.  Berne Indiana had a large Mennonite Community in the late 1800’s.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.
There is another name here it is.
Yoder back CP
Off to the left is the name Reusser
Update from Iggy: The lady standing is most likely Adeline Fox Yoder  1881 -1951
Sarah Krehbiel nee Reusser. 1870 -1923
From that info I think Sarah is standing and  Adeline Fox Yoder is sitting down.

  1. The Yoder family is huge - and has its American roots in Mennonite/Amish PA.

    I wonder if these are mother-daughter?

    This photo appears on Aldine Yoder's Findagrave memorial

    http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=55099150 The photo was added by a Chris Yoder - who's profile indicates he is a "family historian".

    1. He got the photo from Craig apparently an email copy. We will wait and see if he wants the original. I am happy to send it to him. :)

  2. I wonder if that additional surname might be Rensser instead of Reusser. Back at that point, some handwriting styles rendered "n" and "m" more like we write "u." Take a look at the "n" in the written word, "Aunt." It looks similar.
