Aug Behrens place Iowa Brainerd ant
Looks like four older people and two children in front of the house and a man and a team of horses with a carriage.
The little boy in front of the fence has a bicycle, and it looks like there is a pram in front of one of the men.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. There are a few August Behrens in Iowa. The most likely one is August Behrens born 1865 and died 1953, his wife's name was Dorothea 1866-1940. They are buried in Hillcrest Cemetery Grundy County Iowa. Grundy County ajoins Butler County where New Hartford Iowa is located.

    1. Looking at how the writer formed the "n" in Behrens, I am wondering if that first name might have been "Ang" for Angus, instead???

  2. There is an Aug C Behrens with spouse Bertha Behrens in 1928, living in Waterloo; Black Hawk, Iowa. Funny thing ... I can't find him in the Census.. just the City directory for decades.

  3. Behrens are closely related to the Thiemer and Benorden families (later forgotten photos).
