I have a grand old studio portrait of Minna Fricke, which I would like to get back in the hands of family members. The picture was taken in Aurora (Kane Co.) IL in about 1890, and shows a young lady about 15-18 years of age.
1880 census shows me that a Minna Fricke, daughter of Henry C. (41) and Elisabeth (36) Fricke was 8 years old, and the family lived in Chicago, IL. Henry was a school teacher. I assume that THIS Minna is the one in the photo, but there is another Minna Fricke shown in the 1930 census for Aurora (Kane Co.), who could also be her.
The 1930 Kane Co., IL census shows a Minna Fricke, age 57, as wife of Rev. C. J. Fricke. He was 60, and they were married when he was 24 and she 21.
I do NOT know which Minna Fricke is in the photo I have, but if you would recognize her, I would be happy to scan you the photo. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
