Vintage photos of:
A distant cousin, Emma Bailey, née Scott. 1883 Iowa - 1970 California. View full size.
This picture was taken about 1888, I believe in South Dakota.
Seated left to right: Sophronia Maria Lucas (née Lowe) with her grandson Carroll Mayne Lucas; Parker Lucas; the baby on his lap is Parker Vincent Lucas, his great-great-grandson. The elderly lady is Sylvia Fulton, Parker's second wife.
Standing in the back: the gent staring off into the distance is Aaron Briney Lucas Sr. and the hefty gentleman with the mustache is William Vincent Lucas, Aaron's dad.
I do not know who the two women are standing on either side of the men.
My great-uncle Paul Schubert in the late 1800s. He and his brother Fred Schubert were owners of Schubert's Studios. Taken in the late 1800s. Paul never married. View full size.
My great-great-grandparents Fred and Emma Schubert in their wedding photo, taken April 13, 1888. Emma was born in Schleswig, Germany on October 7, 1863 and died on June 24, 1912; she was buried in Kiel, Wisconsin. Fred Schubert was born in Lesohwitz bei Goritz, Germany on November 21, 1852. He came to this country with his parents at age nine and settled in Sheboygan, Wisconsin where later he became a wagon maker. In 1880, however, he entered a partnership with his brother Paul Schubert and started a photo studio in Kiel, Chilton and New Holstein. He continued the partnership until the time of his death. They also went on to have six children. All my photos are those of the Schubert Bros. studio. View full size.
