Special Wedding Photo Genealogy treat for Mothers Day

Isn't this a special treat. What we have here is a never before seen Wedding Photo of Herman and Annie. It seems to include the witnesses and Flower girls. This Photo is not enhanced. Perhaps on another day, I will. It locked up on me a moment ago.

Now who is everyone. I think that Herman's brother, Fred was a witness. I don't believe Fred was married then yet. And I think the other witness was one of his sisters. I hate to say with out checking first. If I recall correctly, I think both of his witnesses died shortly after.

Anyone recognize the faces in the photograph. Looking into the photo notice on the bottom right side a young blond. I bet she is Gertrude. I am not sure who it is on the left. I had not even imagined that she had flower girls in the wedding. How did she pick among her little sisters for that job. Perhaps just the youngest two.

I shall have to get out some dates of birth for her sisters and the exact date of this wedding to make this an accurate post.

I have also forgotten where I got this special Wedding photo?

For now enjoy this as it is.

Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh Young Dwight with his Chick.

I altered the picture. Somehow the alteration was too shiny for the picture. I tried to cover the bent part. I had the picture protected, but not enough. somehow it got bent in the envelope. Which I will regret to my dying day.

So unfortunately you see here with all it's noise and the scratch on the photo. Also, there is not enough contrast between Dwight's clothing and his chick. perhaps an easier way to fix scratches is to go to straight black and white. I do wish I had a good photo restoration program like I had before. [sigh]

You see here Dwight is slightly older than the last time you saw him with his chicks. He is still a successful farmer, just not as fanciful dressed.
And Now Dwight has selected a slightly Older chick.

I still love this photo the most though. I love the grass and his bare feet and that hat. Annie was definately going for a certain type of Photo result. I think she achieved it. It is adorable. Or they are adorable.
