This is the wedding photo of my mother’s parents. They are from the left, Hilda Bromerloh Kestler and setting John E. Kestler. The man standing is my mother’s uncle,Edward Kestler and his wife Mayble. I don’t know if Ed was married to Mayble at the time of my grandparents wedding. My best guess is that my grandparents were married around 1908 t0 1910.
I’m showing these photos because I am the custodian of many photos that were in possession of my mother and to keep the people in these photos in sight for a bit longer. Family photos have a way of disappearing as generations die off. I look at the photos and wonder, what the people in the photos were thinking and what happened to them right after the photos were taken. My grandfather was wearing two rings on his left hand and my grandmother was wearing her ring over gloves.
