Photo Number 1899

This is a photo from Craig’s Collection.
Isabelle  Craigs
This is a small photo it measures 3 inches x 4 inches.
Isabelle  Craigs back
Isabelle Gerber   Ben Gerber (it is faint)
Mrs Levi Moushberger?? Moeschberger
Raymond  Eddy & Janettes Mother
The photo was probably taken about 1900.
I think one of these ladies may be  Isabelle Schwartz Gerber 1877-1949  Husband Benjamin 1874-1940.  Both are buried at Berne Adams County Indiana.

Update from Iggy:
In the same cemetery as Isabelle is a Levi Moeschberger / Meshberger He was born in 187 and his wife. Ellen / Ella was born in 1876. Her maiden name was Gerber but I think she was a cousin of Benjamin. She is Find A Grave Memorial# 55252705.

Levi and Ella had son Raymond (Find A Grave Memorial# 55252810) and the 1930 US census shows "Jennette" born in 1919. I think "Eddy" was Edward,

Most of the children changed the name to Meshberger.
They also had a son named Denver Meshberger who died in 2006.  Jeanette was still living at that time.

This photo went Full Circle 124 on July 8, 2015
