    Kroeker, Bernhard-1848 and extended family
    Taken around 1918. Bernhard is seated in the center. The only couple known to me with certainty is Abraham F. Friesen-1857 and his wife Maria Kroeker-1877 third from the left. One source has identified the seated women as follows: (L to R)
    Anna - 1883; Katharina - 1878; Maria - 1877; (Father Bernhard - 1848); Helena - 1870; Katharina Friesen - 1883 (wife of Bernhard - 1880); Helena Friesen - 1888 (wife of Heinrich - 1885); Sarah - 1882.
