John & Regina Wanner

Thanks to Melece Hudson Salisbury, a Wanner cousin, for this photo.

She found this picture of John & Regina Wanner in a box of photos.  I am glad she was diligent and sought out who they were rather than some of the alternatives.

It appears this might even be a wedding picture, or close to that time, of John & Regina.

I have shared the biography of John & Regina written by their daughter, Mary, before.  Click on the link to read that history.

John George Wanner Jr was born 29 October 1870 in Holzgerlingen, Böblingen, Württemberg, Germany and died 5 January 1947 in Chicago, Cook, Illinois.  He had been married once already and had two children  before this photo.  After Regina passed away, he remarried two more times.

Regina Friederike Nuffer was born 26 January 1869 in Neuffen, Esslingen, Württemberg, Germany and died 10 March 1942 in Preston, Franklin, Idaho.  She had been married once already and had one child before this photo.

Hopefully some day I can write a more comprehensive history of John & Regina.
