Photo Number 576

This is a photo from the Antique Shop in Motley that sells ice cream cones.  There are a couple of shops in Motley and a Flea Market.  It is a great little town for antiqueing.
Charles and Deloris Lorenz  Motley Ice Cream shop
This photo was taken by Hanapel of Tracy Minnesota.  The flap on the folder says Leona’s cousin Delores Danielowski and Chuck Lorenz. The beautiful bride is wearing a sensible suit and so is the groom.

I struck out on the photographer.  But I did find Charles Christopher Lorenz born Jan 31, 1925 and died February 1982 in Burlington, Wisconsin.  He was married to Delores Danielowski and they had three children Rebecca, Charles and Rodney.  Their son Charles was born in 1948 so I would think that they were married in 1946 or 1947.   What is way cool about this search..even though I ran into dead ends this family can trace their roots all the way back to 1715 in Germany with a Heinrich Lorenz..awesome!!

Perhaps Iggy or Abra can work some of their magic to get this photo back home.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Abra: 
Deloris was born August 6, 1923 & died Oct. 23 2009. According to the MOMS (Minnesota Official Marriage System), Deloris Lorraine Danielowski and Charles Christopher Lorenz were married 4/6/1947 in Redwood County MN.

  2. Hi, I just love seeing your old photos... do you FIND old photos? If I sent you a name, can you keep an "eye" out for one. My dad is trying to find a photo of his father, they were all lost when he was a child.
