Marla Taylor writes, "This photo was among my grandmothers things. Mildred Fenstermacher (born 1905) moved to the Putnam area in the early 1900's. She and her siblings are in this picture as well as a Great Aunt of mine on my fathers side, Avis Hunter. I don't know why my other Grandmother, Retta Hunter, was not in the picture. Her age was between that of Avis and Mildred. Perhaps she was absent that day, or perhaps whoever wrote the names on the back made a mistake somewhere.
I don't promise all the names are correct, but I have nothing else to go by. I notice there is a Landa Reber. I am also related to the Rebers and have no record of a Landa, but I do have a Lloyd who would be the right age. Based on Mildred's age the picture was made about 1910-1912."
