Gottleib Eberle family 1912, Edgemont, SD
My maternal grandparents hired a photographer to visit their homestead so they could show relatives in Russia how well they were doing in the New World. Note the display of farm produce, game, horses, buggy, and farm equipment. My grandparents were Germans who moved to Russia and then eventually to America. Both my grandmother and grandfather became American citizens and had eight children (four boys and four girls), five of which are shown in this photo. My mother was born after this photo was taken.
