Photos of Hiram Meister & Martha "Mattie" Leamer
|Hiram & Mattie Meister and Aaron & Beatrice Weibel||Hiram & Mattie (Leamer) Meister were parents of Beatrice Meister Weibel. Photo probably taken about 1896; Aaron & Beatrice were married about 1895 and Aaron died in 1897.|
|Hiram Meister||Guessing about 1900. Photo taken in Fairbury, NE.|
|Mattie Leamer Meister||Guessing about 1900. Photo taken in Fairbury, NE.|
|Hiram & Mattie Meister and Beatrice & Aileen Weibel||Guessing about 1902. 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|
|Mattie Leamer Meister||
This photo is from a collage of either Rebecca Stephens Leamer and 7
of her children, or of the 8 surviving children after Rebecca's death.
There is a daughter Rachel who died sometime after 1900, and Rebecca died
in 1903, so the collage could have been from either occasion.. ID's from
Dick & Bobbie Leamer and Charles Leamer, believed to be correct but
not positive for all of them, especially Henrietta.
|Hiram & Mattie Meister; Jacob & Maria Weibel; Lotus Nicholas||Lotus was born in 1917, so this was taken about that time.|
|.||4 Generation Photo Lotus Nicholas||Guessing about 1919. 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||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
