Conrad Fiet family

"The photo of the Conrad and Caroline (Flage) Fiet family was found in our barn when we moved into our home. After talking with the daughter of the previous home owner, she believed the photo was of her grandmother and her family, but was unsure of which side of the family tree it belonged to. I extensively researched the family tree, and have been able to put names to the faces of each family member shown." ... Aubrie Lenz-Monroe

FIET WINKIE Ludlow, Ia., Nov. 16 -- Special: The country home of Mrs. Edward Ludeking here was the scene of a pretty wedding Thursday when Miss Martha Fiet, daughter of Mrs. Conrad Fiet, became the bride of Herman Winke, son of William Winkie, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Widmayer. After the ceremony the bridal couple and the relatives and friends partook of a wedding dinner at the Ludeking home. The young couple will make their home on the Paul Ludeking farm.
~Dubuque Telegraph Herald, November 16th, 1926

Note that the name George is replaced by Herman and Winke/Winkie is spelled differently throughout the wedding announcement. Martha was married to George H. Winke. The surname is found spelled both ways in various other newspaper articles & records but WINKE is the spelling on their gravestone in Zalmona cemetery.
