Fresenius and Ives Family
Sent by
A Ruston <>

I am descended from Thomas Barbour Ives and Louisa Jane Riley from Fredricksburg, and on the other side from the Fellers and Fresenius families.  My cousin, John Barrett Ives just met with me earlier today.  I didn't know if you would be interested, but he gave me several pictures including one of Robert Frederick Fresenius, and three of his daughter Mathilde.  I have attached them, as well as one of John Barbour Ives, Sr who was the son of Thomas and Louisa Jane Riley, and husband of Mathilde Fresenius. 
Please feel free to share them with anyone else or put them up on the GenWeb is you are still putting things on there.  I also have obits for many of the family, inclusing Bertha Basse Fresenius, Clara Ressman Feller, and several others.   Amanda Ives Ruston

Robert Fresenius
Robert "Bob" Fresenius, taken about 1905 or so. Maybe at the Lone Star Brewery where he was employed.
He is the quite large man on the right; I don't know if the other two men were coworkers or relatives or friends.
