German Immigrant Ancestors
in Syracuse and Onondaga County, New York

John and Elisabeth Lipke, Leonard and Tony
Johann / John and Elisabeth Lipke with their two youngest
(and only American-born) children, Leonard and Tony.
Photo taken in the Syracuse area circa 1916.
This is the only photo I have ever seen of Johann Lipke.
It could well have been taken on 22 April 1916,
the day he and his wife and minor children became U.S. citizens.

Signature of Johann Lipke
His signature
as it appeared on his Certificate of Naturalization.
