Joseph Gross Heim and Rosa Heim
Group photo taken at Martin Ulmer home, probably early 1914. Man in hat at left may be Martin Ulmer. Two men at right next to tree are Emerson Heim and probably Norman Ulmer. Man in beard in dark suit to Emerson’s right is Joseph G. Heim with his wife Rosa. Woman on left end of back row is Mary Ulmer Wuster. Man in suit to her lower left is Melvin Heim. Woman in white, rear center, is Sarah Heim Ulmer. Man with mustache to left of tall man with hat center back row is Samuel F. Heim. Woman to his right front is Edna Ulmer. Man in black hat, right rear, is probably Emanuel Ulmer. Picture was sent to Watson Kiess on April 7, 1914, the day after Jacob G. Heim died, but obviously was taken before that. Woman to Emerson Heim’s left may be Mrs. Jacob G. (Regina) Heim. Orville wrote that “Grandpa was not able to go so is not in it.” His grandfather would have been Emanuel Ulmer. Possibly he was referring to his great-grandfather, Jacob G. Heim. The postcard read, “Dear Cousin, This is not very good but you know most of them. It was taken at Uncle Martin’s when we first came home. None of our pictures were good that day. I wish you a happy Easter and also anniversary, this will get to you on that day, I hope. Grandpa was not able to go so it not in it. With Love, Orville”
