This wonderful approx 120 years old (1890s circa) photo is of my Great-Great-Great Grandparents (5 generations back). Bernhard Knirsch (1831-1906) and his wife Mary Dorothea Harmening (1834-1924). Both born in Germany and died in Blue Island, IL.

My Mom’s great-grandparents on the Knirsch side. Marie Amelia Knirsch married Henry Noa in 1882 in Chicago. The result of this marriage was Amelia Rose Noa who married Joseph C. Podrasky.
