|This photograph was taken circa 1906 before Gust left home for German;|
he is the oldest boy in a three-piece suit, holding a book in his left hand;
photograph from my personal collection
As you can see, the photo includes Gust, his mother, three sisters and three brothers. And that is the problem. The information from my Mom is that he had two sisters and four brothers.
|Carl and Caroline (Ludwig) Lange|
Frankly, none of the sons look to be only two years younger than Gust. And perhaps the infant, Fred, is not in the photograph, but that still doesn't explain the extra sister. Where to go from here?
