Left to right:  [unknown woman*], Clarence, Bert, [unknown woman*], Lou, Anna Catharine (Rapp) Riehle, Cornelia in front of Anna,
Rosalia in carriage, John, George C. Riehle, Francis A. Riehle.  Sitting in the back by the fence is Clemens Riehle.
Per Die Familie Riehle (c. Joan Riehle Ruse 1982) the man leaning on the fence was a neighbor, Mr. Carr(?)

Cornelia was born October 1893 and Rosalia in March 1895 so we
estimate this was taken late in the summer of 1895

* There are two women in the above photograph whose identity is uncertain. Here is our speculation concerning their identity:

  • George C. married Katherine (Kate) Agnes Schmidt (1874–1899) in early 1896. She could be the women at the far left, who resembles Kate as shown in other available photographs.
  • It is also possible, even likely, that the older woman behind Bert is Philomena (Weidemer) Riehle (1832-1908), Clemens’ second wife and the mother of George.
