When this wedding portrait, taken by W. A. Bishop, was given to the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center, only five names were listed on the back. However, an article found in the November 17, 1921 issue of the Sandusky Register has allowed us to identify all the persons in the photograph.
Miss Leona Flint became the bride of Harry Krawetzki on Thursday, November 17, 1921. Rev. Theo. J. C. Stellhorn performed the 4 p.m. ceremony at Zion Lutheran Church. Leona wore a white satin gown with a long tulle veil, and carried a bouquet of roses. Her bridesmaids were her sister Miss Martha Flint, and the sister of the groom, Miss Viola Krawetzki. Miss Eunice Flint served as her sister’s flower girl. The groom’s attendants were Ruel Flint and William Koehler. Clara Schoewe is also in the back row in the picture. At the wedding, Clara sang “Oh Promise Me” to the accompaniment of organist Fred Wiechert. After a wedding dinner at the home of the bride’s parents, the newlyweds took a brief wedding trip, and planned to make their home on Pearl Street in Sandusky.
It is a good idea to identify the individuals in your own family photos, so that future generations will know more about their family heritage.
