Reincke Reunion -1956

This photo was in my Grandmother's collection, but there were no names written on it. The Muchow family also had a copy of thesame reunion ... with names!!

Since I first put the photo on this web-site,  others have been identified and corrections have been made.

The photographer has even 'fessed' up!!   I have made the new notations in red, rather than changing the original identification that appeared with the photo.

Thank-you All !!

I have added the relationships.  Please let me know if you find errors!!

"I found a newspaper clipping that Mother has marked 1956 showing the reunion was held at the William Kuhse home in Postville in honor of Mr. & Mrs. Clarence H. Meyer and daughters, Mary Jane and Darlene." "If I recall correctly, I took the picture using the camera of Clarence "Howie" Meyer #4 in the photo, the husband of Delores Meyer #22 who is my sister.  Howie was a photographer in the Coast Guard and had the right camera for the job" ...... e-mail from Dorian Muchow, son of Meta Muchow #32
