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.
as it appeared on his Certificate of Naturalization.
