Five of Nine Breitenstein Brothers

Categories // Genealogy Research

Mara Seirp Breitenstein had an album with this photograph of her husband, John Louis Breitenstein as a little boy. It is one of a multitude of porch pictures taken on that porch. John is the little boy on the horse. My wonderful second cousin, Mara Sprott, send me a scanned copy of this photograph, which I had never seen, since it was taken ca. 1899 in rural Jefferson Co., Kentucky. My grandfather wasn't born yet and isn't in the photo.

Ed Theo Mike Lawrence Elizabeth Mike Jr. and John Breitenstein, Prestonia, Jefferson Co., Kentucky

From left to right, Edward Lorenz, Theodore Peter, Mike Breitenstein Sr. (sitting), Lawrence Jacob, Elizabeth (sitting), Mike Jr. and John Louis Breitenstein on the horse. This photograph ca. 1899, possibly late 1898, is the earliest photo I have seen of this group. I wonder who might have an older one of any of the Breitenstein, Fischer, Bodeman or Meier families from the greater Louisville area?

Ida Sherwood Bettis is my paternal grand mother. Aunt Clara is my great aunt. I can remember every nooks and crany of that house and yard...
