My grandma was nearly blind towards the end of her life, and I would help her out by reading her her mail. After many months of doing this she surprised me with this wonderful written history about the lives of my great great great grandfather Friedrich Fischer(1830-1916) and his family 1869-1963, and was written by my cousin Leone Fischer Griesemer. The stories are colorful and very well written. Some of them were downright embarrassing to read aloud to your grandmother:) The first photo is of Grossvater Fischer who was a master freemason, the second photo was of the Mayville school he helped build in 1876 and is listed on the national registry of historic places. The last photo is of his daughter Bertha Fischer Krause, my great great grandmother. Sitting on her lap with her head turned was my grandma age 1, 1913. Thank you all for letting me share.
