Photo Number 400
Do you recognize Josephine? ( Josephine Frendenberg Guhr or Mrs. Ernst Guhr II) She is on the right..now who is the gal with her in this photo..a sister..a cousin..a friend? This looks very 1895 ish to me..with the huge “leg of mutton sleeves” since we know that she (Josephine) was married on December 21, 1895..this could have been taken right around that time. I so want to see the rest of those dresses…
Now we have another name..Mrs. Fred Schreiber ( hopefully it is spelled correctly..it looks like part of it was erased and corrected). This is a cabinet card.
EK (Elbridge) Barker was active as a photographer at 468 Eleventh Ave in Milwaukee from 1870 to 1900. He was quite a traveler..he was born in Vermont in 1835, lived in Milwaukee from 1870 to 1900 then moved to California where he died at age 75 in 1910. It was interesting to read that he lived on a Van Buren Street in both Milwaukee and in Monterey, CA. What are the odds of that happening.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Iggy!
Hold the presses - I found a marriage record for Frederic Scheiber of Greenfield, Milwaukee marrying Bertha Freudenberg (parents Charles and Amalie) on 21-Sep-1889 in Milwaukee, WI.
Freudenberg - Hmm... sisters? Adolphine's (Josephine) wedding record says her parents were Karl and Amalie Freudenberg - Chas - Charles and Karl are the same in German!
Sisters. 99% positive!
How sad. In the 1920 census, Bertha is shown as living with the "in-laws" and divorced.
She had at least two children living with her at the time. Carl Schreiber (b. abt 1894) and Hallie Schreiber (b. 1903)
So these are sisters..Bertha and Josephine..their Mother must have really enjoyed this photo!:)
This photo is headed to Josephine's Great Grandson Ed on December 20, 2010:)
