We heard from a wonderful new relative last night! She's Magdalena (Sand) Block's great grand daughter Jenny, and she enclosed a few photographs. Her grandmother was Hildegard Hoheisel and the delightful photos were passed along from her. However, I believe a little suspense is good for your character, so we'll post them tomorrow or the next day ☺
But first, Solving the Sand Mystery: remember the "Eight Women" photo we've puzzled over here on HH? Over time, we figured out who each woman was except for two: the kneeling woman on the left, and the nectar pourer (bottom, with the pitcher). This was 1920, and we think it was probably a Hesch wedding. In an exchange of emails, Jenny thought that the kneeling woman on the left was most likely Lena Block--dark hair, possibly pregnant, and one of Louisa's four daughters and a daughter-in-law to work that particular occasion. I think she's right.
