Old Photos: Henry Bruck at Bruck's Store

I believe this is Henry K.'s father, so my mother's father's father's father, or my great-great-grandfather. Appears to be turn of the century-ish maybe.

It is said my great great grandfather sold Bryan Adams his first guitar.

Old Photos: More Kellers

More Kellers. I think this is later than the first photo. It could be my great-grandmother 4th from the left, with Grandpa Keller on the far left. This seems a lot less formal than the first. There is a certain heaviness in the photo. The kids seem a bit dejected. Granpda seems to have lost some of his plumpness. It could just be that it's a less formal picture, but I'm going to imagine that the Keller's had some harder times. If Anna was born in 1896, and she is 4th from the left, and is maybe 16, this would be 1908.

To guess even more, that could be my great-great grandmother (name unknown) on the lower right, and then possibly my great-great-great-grandmother looking somewhat ancient. She would have been born in 1825 or so.

I suspect that's about as far back as this can go.

This is possibly Anna Keller's parents, maybe Anna on the right, or perhaps any of the daughters. Or maybe none. There is no real documentation with the photos so I'm trying to be careful about letting guesses turn into assumptions. That would make the father Grandpa Keller of the Gigantic Mustache. He seems young and plump here. This could be turn of the century also.
