Two family photos of my family and town that was described in the book "Mama and Papa" a story of my great great great grandfather Friedrich Fischer, and his family's immigration from Germany and their lives in the small Mayville town in Wisconsin. This photo is set on the old Mayville homestead he helped build for his daughter Bertha Fischer Krause, who's shown in the first photo sitting on the seat with my grandma on her lap on the right and aunt Maxine on the left. The same photo has my great grandmother Frieda Krause first in the row from the left. My great great grossvater "Bertha's husband", is in the second photo #6 from the left. This was also the same homestead our 1897 Vanderman Co. railroad strong box was from, and was probably used as a tool chest by freemason grandpa Fischer. The last two photos are of the Fischer family vault located in Graceland cemetery, Mayville, Wi. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
