Can you identify these Hauser ladies?

The above photos were all in the back of the Thomas Nathaniel and Nancy Hauser family bible. We believe that Hauser Lady 3 is Harriet Hauser. A distant relative to Harriet has another very similar photo and it has been identified as Harriet.

These two photos are both stamped Frantz Studio, Ackley, Iowa.

Mary Francis Goettel, five years and eight months estimated to be taken between 1930-1940's.  So today this Mary Francis could be 60-70 years old and quite possibly have a married name.

Written on the back of the photo with the lady was "Douglas Lodge Itaska Park Minn 1931".  Because this photo was stamped with Frantz Studio, Ackley, Iowa we are guessing that perhaps this is the wife of Herman Goettel.

We know that Herman and Mary Goettel with their two sons, Frank and Karl were living in Ackley per the US Census in 1900.  Any information about these pictures and these Goettels would be greatly appreciated.
