Photograph of Caroline Nipp (my great-grandmother) and William Naescher.
This photo was recently sent to me by a third cousin. Caroline Nipp was my great-grandmother and is pictured here with her first husband, William Naescher. After his death she married John Schaefers. She passed away shortly after giving birth to my grandfather and this is the first photo I have ever seen of her. And a particular gift is that it arrived on the 53rd anniversary of the death of my grandfather! An amazing genealogy gift!
Caroline and William were married in 1879 in Guttenburg, Iowa. This may be a wedding portrait. I wonder what photo William is holding!
