My dad was a marine in WW2. He liked to hike and climb mountains. He was trained as an aeronautical engineer, but became a minister of the gospel after God changed his life. He and my mother were very committed to spreading the good news of the gospel.
My mother's mother, I knew her well most of my life into adulthood. She was very sweet and made wonderful cakes and pies. If she tried to act forcefully, you could tell it took all of the effort she could pull together to do it. She was so heartbroken after her husband Sam died that she only lived two more years. She passed away at 89 years old in 1990.
Ernest G. Sieder married Esther M. Nahrung in this photo taken after 1909 when Ernest's mother died. Three of my great-grandparents are in this photo as well. Ernst H. Sieder is seated next to his son, the groom, and Anna B. and Charles J. Nahrung are seated next to the bride. I believe Hulda Sieder, sister of the groom, is standing behind her father and next to her is Ruby Nahrung. Clara Nahrung is on the right in the back with her hair parted in the middle. Both Ruby and Clara are sisters of the bride. The boy in front is Otto Nahrung, brother of the bride.

My great-grandfather, Ernst H. Sieder came over from Germany with his wife, Karoline, two sons, Ernst and Herman and a newborn daughter who died in Kansas before she was a year old. Three more daughters were born in Kansas. The photo of all five surviving children is a previous post below. They settled in Kansas in the 1880's. I believe this must have been taken in Germany before the first daughter was born.
