 Mathias Zenner (1857 - 1925)
 Anna Maus Zenner (1864 - 1926)
John Dehler (1878 - 1960)

  Probably 1954, when John & Margaret celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. I recognize Herb, Armella, Olivia, Roman, Julia and Sr Herbert ☺ I'm sure I met others, tho.

 August Dehler and Julia Seifert were John's parents, of course. This photo was probably taken around 1900.  Looks like John in the middle of the top row, huh? Oh, and see the girl who looks about 10 over on the right?  That was Rosalia, who married dad's uncle Theodore Hesch in 1920!

John Dehler descendants--same day as top pic, huh?

THANKS again to Fran, the Pictorial Atlases of Morrison County, Minnesota and Find a Grave--wow!
