Frank and Lucinda Geyer family 1922

This photo was in the possession of my grandfather Harlan Geyer and is now in the possession of my aunt. Frank Geyer was my great, great grandfather. He was born 16 April 1862 in Johannesburg, Germany. He sailed to America at the age of 14 with the family of his uncle Josef Freund, landing in New York City on 06 Oct 1876. He worked briefly in NYC repairing shoes before settling in the Wellman, Washington, Iowa area. He was married to Lucinda Ellen Griffith in Lime Creek, Washington, Iowa on 22 December 1888. They had six sons, Francis Grant, Leonard Lawrence, George Everett, John Walter, Wilbur G., and Harold Wayne. Frank and Lucinda were married for almost 50 years when he died in Wellman on 29 March 1938. She died in 1951.
