Photo Details

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Marguerite ROSENOW MITLER which was taken at the Ed Schultze Studio in Heidelberg, Germany. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with Marguerite likely in her teens or 20's at the time it was taken. In addition to her name, she has written "To Florence with Marguerite's Love" and "Now Mrs. Earnest MITLER of NY" on the back of the photograph. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Marguerite and her family:

Marguerite ROSENOW was b. 5 Feb 1886 in Walla Walla, WA to parents Albert ROSENOW and Celia DUSENBERY. Marguerite married Herbert Ernest MITLER (b. 1885 in Peoria, IL to parents Sigmund O. MITLER and Ernestine STERNBERG) on 14 Oct 1911 in Manhattan, NY. and had a son, Ernest Albert MITLER (1916-2002).

Census records provide the following details:

Thanks,
Shelley
