I have an original Cabinet Card photograph of “Emma Ressler and Goldie Ressler Brubaker”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Lancaster (Lancaster Co.) PA.Photo is consistent with those taken about 1885-1890. One is a baby about age 2, and one an adult, mid 20s.Initially it was unclear to me if the baby was Emma or Goldie.
I found an Emma Ressler, born abt 1863 (matching abt age 25 in abt 1888) – in the 1880 census of Shell Rock (Butler Co.) Iowa, as age 17, daughter of Amos and Albertina Ressler, both born in PA.I searched then for a Goldie Ressler, and found her as Goldie V. Ressler, age 13, in the 1900 census of Martic (Lancaster Co.) PA – with date of birth Jul 1886 in PA.In the 1910 Lancaster Co. census, a Goldie Brubaker was age 23, wife of Arthur Brubaker, age 23.
