My Aughenbaugh family came to America from Germany in the 1700's and settled in Pennsylvania and then Kansas. My line starts with John (Mathew) ACHENBACH. His son Johan George Aughenbaugh (1769-1845) married Anna Maria TEXTER (1771-1856), who lived in York County, Pennsylvania. Their son John Thomas Aughenbaugh married Sarah NAYLOR (1803-1865). And, their son Levi Naylor Aughenbaugh (1839-1893) was married to Rebecca Jane FETROW (1844-1906) and settled in Kansas. Their daughter Elmira Frances Aughenbaugh (1867-1941) married Henry GOLLER (1860-1942), who lived in Hanston, Kansas. I am a descendent from this line.

Unknown picture, taken in Wilson, Kansas. I am guessing that the man seated on the left is Levi Aughenbaugh (1839-1893), who at the most would have been 54 years old. I am guessing that the man standing behind him is Henry Goller, who would have been 33. The other two might be Albert Rich (Ida Aughenbaugh's husband, who would have been about 34) and Frank Anker (Lillie Aughenbaugh's husband who would have been in his 20's). Or one man could be Wilson Aughenbaugh, who would have been around 25. I AM NOT SURE OF THE IDENTY OF ANY OF THESE PEOPLE. Can anyone make a positive identification?
