Photos of Ira Preston "Ike" Pfeifer:

Ira Pfeifer young 1918 approx Ira was born in 1906, so guessing about age 12.
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
