Scott Brockelman contributed this photo which has "Church and Parsonage, Laurel, Indiana, where I first went to housekeeping. October 12th, 1906" written on the back. He doesn't know what church it might be or who wrote the inscription, but he hopes someone can identify it.
This picture is of the Roehm/Schottelkotte store that used to stand at the corner of State Road 46 and St. Peter Road in Lawrenceville. According to contributor Deedee Davis, the "big guy" on the far left with the suspenders is George Clemenz. Deedee's uncle John Roehm is holding the baby. Can you identify any of the other folks?
The man in the center is Joseph Lang, possibly the owner of this establishment. Do you know where it was located, or the names of any of the other men? Joseph Lang was b. 1878 in Indiana, son of Edward & Sophie, and grew up in Butler Twp near Oldenburg. He married Otilda Meyer in Franklin County on 17 Apr 1907 and is listed as a farmer in Springfield Twp from 1900-1930. Photo was contributed by Becky Kincaid.

These 5 photos were sent by Barb Ford and may be members or relatives of the BAUER family of Franklin County. If you know any of them, please email Karen and
