Lenz Family of Morrellville - 1916


A very nice portrait of my grandfather Walter Lenz and family from around 1916. Front Row - left to right: Regina (Gene Swank), mother Rose (Baum) Lenz, Florence (Becker), Rosella (Adams-deaf), father John Henry Lenz I and Walter (Yatty) Lenz - deaf.
Second Row - left to right: Margaret (Gloor-deaf), Albert-deaf, Lena (Pittman-deaf) and John Henry II. The Lenz family home is still there on Virginia Avenue, it's right next to St. Paul's Lutheran Church of which they were founding members. Of all the people in this picture - the last to die was Gene who passed away at the age of 93 in 2005.
