Description:
I've "rescued" an old photograph of Christina MISNER which was taken at the Nast Studio in Denver, CO. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1890's or early 1900's when Christina was about 9 years old. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Christina and her family:

Christina or Christine MISNER was b. 1893 in Colorado to parents Andrew “Allen” Johannes MISNER (1839-1926) and Elizabeth HERREN or SCHULTZ (1851-1943). Christine was one of 6 children born to this couple including, Theresa; Barbara; Emma; Rosa or Rose M.; Bertha; and Christina or Christine “Tina” MISNER, all born between 1879 and 1893. Christina married Simon H. CLOSE on 23 Jun 1915 in Denver, CO and died in 1988 and is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs, CO.
