  5. Here is another photo of this gravestone:

    And here is the marriage entry at family search (where he is shown as William Adam Stainert):
    https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XRG4-RWL

    So:
    William A. Stainer *12.Dec1862 in Grafton, Ozaukee, Wisconsin +27.Jun1946
    marries on 4.Sep1888 in Fredonia, Ozaukee, Wisconsin
    Bette Auguste Knaepple *10.Jul1866 in Port Washington, Ozaukee, Wisconsin +17.Nov1915

    His parents are named as Anton Stainer (Stainert) and Mary Schmidt (Smith).
    Her parents are named as Friedrich Knaepple and Ursula Brombach. I read in another record at family search that they are Swiss born.

    2. In the 1920 Census Willaim A. Stainer, widower, is still living in Port Washington, Ozaukee, Wisconsin. In his household are the two daughters Bettie, age 27, and Marie, age 24.

      Interestingly, the birthplace of his parents - Anton Stainer and Marie Schmidt Stainer / Mary Smith Stainer - is stated as Bavaria.

      https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MFKH-187

      The 1930 Census shows William A. Stainer living as the father-in-law in the household of Adolph S. Roska, together with his daughter Betty L. Stainer Roska and two (grand)children in Port Washington, Ozaukee, Wisconsin.

  6. At FindAGrave there is an obituary for William A 'Bill' Roska *10.Sep1920 in Port Washington, Ozaukee, Wisconsin + 17Jan 2011 in Hazelhurst, Oneida, Wisconsin. The burial site is unknown.

    Acoording to the obituary, Bill is survived by his wife, two sons, a daughter, nine grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
    And he was preceded in death by his sister Betty York.

    So we are close to living relatives of one of the Stainer brothers in the photo. Maybe someone has luck in making a contact.

  7. I think the other person in the photo might be Andrew's son, Monroe Andrew Stainer born 9 Apr 1883..

    Andrew's obit in the Hays Free Press - 1919-06-26

    "Mr. Andrew P. Stainer, a former citizen of Hays, passed away at his home in Canton, Ohio, on June 21, 1919, He was well known and loved by all who knew him. His friends in Hays were grieved indeed to hear of his death. He was a good citizen, quiet, faithful, and serious in all his responsibilities and undertakings. In business he was diligent, a man of sterling honor, who always kept his word and never betrayed a confidence He was born Nov. 10, 1857, at Grafton, Wis. In 1879 he moved to Hays. He was not only a successful business man, but he helped to improve Hays by erecting a modem brick store and office building, one of the first of a series of business structures that have added so much to the attractiveness of the new Hays- Seven years ago he left Hays and finally settled in Canton Ohio, which was his home at the time of his death. He passed through a short illness of eight weeks but was unable to recover his health. He died at the age of 61 years, 7 months and 10 days. He is survived, by a widow, Mr3. Elizabeth Stainer, a son, Monroe A. Stainer, and two brothers. To these bereaved ones we extend our deepest sympathy."
