The following photograph scans were sent to the organization in 2002 by Bill and Josi Hiller. If you you can help identify the "who, what, when, where and why" of these photos, it would be greatly appreciated.

1. - Sam and Elmire (Gasser) Elmer and their six children. Seated are Sam, Estherlee Ruth (youngest daughter) and Elmire (wife). Standing are Elsie Ernestine, Otto Herman (my grandfather), Benjamin Samuel, Edna Elmire and Olga Adele.

[Identification supplied by Jeff Elmer, 12/19/08]

2. - 50th Anniversary (1930) Celebration of
John Henry Vick and Ernestine Elmer Vick

[Jeff Elmer notes, "Sam is standing and Elmire is seated - both at far left."]

3. - Sam and Elmire (Gasser) Elmer with grandchildren. The only children I recognize are Otto’s. Harold Stout, my uncle, is in Sam’s lap and Marion Claire, my aunt, is seated at far right. From the recorded birthdates dates that I have, I suspect the other girls are Olga’s (2) and Edna’s (2). Their names are Erlene Adell, Verna Anna, Elizabeth Georgine and Laurice Jeanne.

[Jeff Elmer notes, "Bill Runyan and Edna Elmer were married May 5, 1918. This must be a wedding photo.]
