I've "rescued" an old photograph of Carl ORTMAN and his bride taken on their wedding day in Mitchell, SD. The photograph appears to have been taken when the couple were in their teens to 30's at the time it was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Carl and his family:
Carl F. ORTMAN was b. 21 May 1875 in Liebwalde, East Prussia, Germany to parents Carl Michael ORTMANN (1847-1923) and Elizabeth LOEPP (1845-1922). Carl was one of 3 children born to this couple including, Carl F.; Selma A.; and Bruno E. ORTMANN or ORTMAN, all born between 1875 and 1882.
Carl died 13 Dec 1939 in Ellensburg, WA and is buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Ellensburg, WA.
His wife Louisa J. ENGELHORN was b. 28 Jan 1882 in Lansing, IA and died 21 Feb 1973 and is buried in the same cemetery as her husband.
The couple were married on 23 Apr 1902 and together they had 7 children including, Ruth Louise; Lucy S.; Mildred; and Gertrude along with three others born between 1904 and 1917.
I'm hoping to locate someone from the family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
