Ida Zeilinger

This is an Azo Postcard used from 1904 to 1918.

Perhaps this is the same lady that I featured on Mother’s Day…an AZO postcard that was used from 1926 to 1940.

  1. I sent a couple messages through ancestry. Hopefully someone will swing by and give a story to these Forgotten Photos! :-)

  2. I can confirm the birthdate and place for Ida Zeilinger. Ida is the sister-in-law of my 1st great aunt. Thank you for finding me and sharing this photo.
    I don't understand why the church and the baptism are located over 200 miles apart. Did Rev. Zeilinger serve several churches in Iowa? Also, my records show that John Zeilinger was married to M. R. Silverhorn, not Emilie Gauger.

    FYI, Ida's older brother Asmus became a missionary in Tanzania in the 20's and during WW II.

    Thanks again,

    1. I believe he was married twice first to Rosina M about 1874 they had eight children. Rosina M Silverhorn died about 1891 Then about 1895 he married Emilie Gauger and they had four children.
      here is the link to that information.

  3. Wow I have been looking through family photos with no names! My Great grandma Edna was Ida's sister.. I just got a box of photos and negatives and now I can place face with name!
