Aaron Weibel & Beatrice Meister Wedding 1893 approx Aaron George Weibel married Beatrice Kate Meister about 1893. They had one daughter, Aileen, born in 1896. Aaron died in 1897, and Beatrice remarried his first cousin, Ervin Pfeifer. Photo taken in DeWitt, Saline Co., NE.
Aaron, Beatrice & Aileen Weibel 1893 & 1900 Photos of Aaron & Aileen look like they are in same outfits as their wedding photo. Photo of Aileen was taken later as she was not born until 1896.
Hiram & Mattie Meister and Aaron & Beatrice Weibel 1896 approx Hiram & Mattie (Leamer) Meister were parents of Beatrice Meister Weibel. Photo probably taken about 1896; Aaron & Beatrice were married about 1893 and Aaron died in 1897.
Beatrice Meister Weibel 1898 approx Guessing on date.
Beatrice & Aileen Weibel 1900 approx I'm guessing Aileen is about age 4 in this photo. She may be older. Aileen was born in 1896. Photo taken in Wilber, NE
Hiram & Mattie Meister and Beatrice & Aileen Weibel 1902 approx I'm guessing Aileen is about age 6 in this photo. She may be older. Aileen was born in 1896. Photo taken in Wilber, NE
4 Generation Photo Lotus Nicholas 1919 approx This is a 4 generation photo for Lotus Nicholas. Left to right are: 1) Mattie Leamer Potter Meister, 2) Beatrice Kate Meister Weibel Pfeifer, 3) Aileen Weibel Nicholas, and 4) Lotus Nicholas. I am guessing Lotus is about age 2 in this photo. She was born in about 1917 according to census records.
Group Nicholas house with numbers 1921 approx I think photo was taken in early 1920's based on the two little blonde girls who I think are Lotus & Ruth Nicholas, born in 1916 & 1918. Jacob Weibel died in 1920 & I do not think he is in the photo, unless he is #25. I think the baby is Richard Nicholas, who was born in June 1920, so that would make photo about spring of 1921) Maria Weibel died in 1934. Hiram & Mattie Meister both died in 1931.
#3 & 4 are definitely Hiram & Mattie (Leamer Potter) Meister
I think #12 is Maria (Schrotberger) Weibel. #13 looks like someone I have seen but I am not finding the photo I recall - is he a Weibel? He is standing next to Maria.
I think #16 is Ileta Pfeifer, holding Ruth Nicholas (Ruth born 1918)
#20 may be Ira Pfeifer, with Ira holding Lotus Nicholas. (Lotus born 1916) #11 looks like older photos of Ira's wife Ruth Reid Pfeifer, but they were married in December 1931, and I think this photo is earlier than that, so may not be Ruth Pfeifer. (Besides she would only be about age 19 in 1922, and I think this woman looks older than that although it is hard to see her well). I think Lotus looks about age 6, so maybe photo taken in 1922????
#22 is Beatrice (Meister Weibel) Pfeifer, holding Laverne Pfeifer, who was born in 1915, so again I think photo was 1920 to 1922 based on his age. #24 is Aileen Weibel Nicholas. #21 is probably Woodrow Pfeifer
#29 is George Nicholas holding baby - possibly his son Richard Nicholas who was born in June 1920
Group Nicholas house without numbers

Photo taken 1936 approx.
Beatrice, Vern, Arda & Woody Pfeifer


Photo from Linda Pfeifer Dodds, who ID'd the people. She wrote "I'm also attaching one of Grandma Bea, Uncle Verne, Mom & Dad. I think it was taken at Grandma Bea's house in Lincoln but I can't be positive. Again, no date on the back but a developer's stamp from Grand Island, so that would have been before Mom & Dad moved to Lex & before I was born -- say '46 or '47 or so maybe."
Beatrice Pfeifer 1950 approx Guessing on date. She was age 75 in 1950.
