This photo is for the web site. It was sent to me from California. Maybe a
connection to the Klocke, Skalla, Mattes families.
Anyone know who it is?

This unknown photo is one of two provided by Kay Derner
I have some hints. First of all, all those I sent you were taken
at Rohner Studios in Carroll City, Iowa. That is embossed or printed on
all of them. All of them were taken out of an old Derner family album and
the only one I have been able to identify was taken about 1911 at the same
studio and they are the first 3 children of Henry Derner who is the brother of
my grandfather Anton Derner, both of whom are sons of Frank and Kathryn (Weber)
Derner. They resided in Breda, IA. One of the pictures had my Frank
Derner written on the back of it but it is now a picture of him so it was
probably sent to him. I have an old family album from my mother's side and
each sibling received portraits of weddings, First Communion, etc. I
suspect the same was true in this case. There are also a couple of
pictures from Dubuque and Sac City in the group. Frank had the two sons
and 3 daughters, Theresa married Edward Droessler, Josephine married Joseph
Knecht and Frances married to Earl McGovern. Frank also had brothers in the
area. I know nothing about his wife Kathryn (Catherine) Weber. There
are too many Weber's. I have an inquiry to Frank's granddaughter who lives
in Calif. re: her grandmother and hope I will get some solid info there.
She did not know anyone in the pictures but I am hoping she will remember
something about her grandmother. Distant cousins have some info about the
Weber's but it does not match mine. Any questions? I will be glad to share
info with anyone. Kay
Not only are these unknown photos, I do NOT know who sent them
or owns the original's. If these were yours please drop a line and I will
attach a note.
Only one priest in #1 is: P. J. O' Connor, (back) upper left.
John Phelan, (back) upper left, and P. J. O' Connor, (back)
P, J. O'Connor
Since I've contacted you we found that #4 is Fr. Quirk.
He was identified using a 1950 pamphlet/book entitled 'The
Priests of Waucona'.
My family is in possession of a number of priest photos taken
in Carroll. We are trying to identify one of our ancestors who may be included.
Can anyone help identify the unknowns?

I have a photograph, found in a box in California, that I would love to return
to the family. It's a wonderful photo of five generations. I'm guessing the
photo dates from the 1910's (but that's a guess).
I have attached a scan and would love to hear from anyone who can identify these
five generations of Iowans.
The photo is mounted on a black mat that is embossed with Rohner - Carroll,
Feel free to list my contact information as
Great site! keep up the good work.
I found these photographs in my
grandmother's box of pictures. I believe that they may be Schultes from Breda
as my grandfather's mother was Caroline Schulte from there. Also the photos were
marked with Breda Iowa on them. Maybe you could post them to see if anyone
recognizes them. I also have a picture of Julia Schulte which had her name
written on the back. I suspect these may be her brothers and sisters. Julia
was my Great-grandmother's 1st cousin.
