ID's and photo from Doris Peters & Beulah Felderman Dunn (widow of
Everett E. Dunn, they farmed Jacob Weibel farm all of their active life)

they pronounced Maria's name "mah-ri'-ah" like the wind is called

Picture taken 08 24 1915
|Hiram & Mattie Meister; Jacob & Maria Weibel; Lotus Nicholas||Taken about 1917. Lotus was born about 1917. Jacob Weibel died in 1920.|
|4 generation photo Maria Schrotberger Weibel||Taken in 1919. Oldest to youngest are: Maria
Schrotberger Weibel, Rolandus Franklin Weibel, Alfred Forrest Weibel and
Marie Glennette Weibel (Alfred's firstborn). Photo taken in Joliet, IL.
Photo & ID from Erma Weibel.
|Group Nicholas house with numbers||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

|Maria Schrotberger Weibel & 4 children||ID from Doris Peters: "The back of the picture reads
"Mama (Clara Dunn), Rolandus, Uncle Oscar, Aunt Minnie and Grandma
Weibel 1931. This would have been the same day as the large group photo
with me as a baby." Grandma Weibel is Maria Margaret Schrotberger Weibel.
|Weibel home in DeWitt, NE||From Doris Peters: This is the farm home built by Jacob and Maria Weibel on their farm in 1888. The storm mentioned in their story would have been the famous Blizzard of '88". Grandma told of being at school only 1/4 mi north. The storm hit with such ferocity that it became impossible to see. There were no fences to follow, just open range which is why so many perished. Grandma and the other of the younger children headed for home holding on to each other. It happened that the older boys at home were watching for them and caught them in time as they were beginning to drift in wrong direction. The lady in the yard was Mary Richmond who was the "hired girl". This is the house in which Harvey and Cora Weibel lived before they moved to IL. Then Everett and Beulah Dunn, grandson of Jacob and Maria lived there all of their working life. They moved to Beatrice and sold the house. It was moved about 10 miles east, even crossed the Big Blue River and is still lived in.|
