Pictures Contributed by Rose Anne (Eaton) Jones

Anna Wagner (1852-1906) is my great grandmother - Anna (Weyers or Wiards) Wagner. She married my great grandfather, Charles F. Wagner (1845-1907), son of Frederick Wagner (1804-1876) and Deborah Oden (1818-1846)

The picture with Mae Wagner (Eaton) holding the guitar may have been taken in Stillman Valley—not sure. Her fiancé, Ed Eaton, of Jo Daviess County is sitting next to her. I suspect that her sister, Nellie Wagner Gigous is sitting in the middle and probably her husband, Elmer Gigous next to her. The fellow wearing the bonnet is a “Knodle” according to the note on the back of the picture—don’t know first name. Maybe someone can recognize the others.

My grandmother, Mae Elizabeth Wagner, worked at Marshall Fields in Chicago for a few years, but she and my grandfather, Ed Eaton were married at Oregon---August 30, 1906---marriage certificate above. It states a Fred Knodle was a witness to their marriage.
