Emma’s Marriage

On June 22, 1907 Emma was married in her parents house on Page Street to Claus Frank Emil Witzel. She called him “Fred” and as he got older, everyone referred to him as “CFE.”







While honeymooning at Lake Tahoe, they rented rowboats, fished, walked and took many photos. Most of these photos have faded or are of only one or the other of them. The third photo was taken in March 1914 when Frederick was five years old and Claude about two.  Emma looks very happy. The third boy, Everett, would arrive five years later.     This last photo was taken around 1925.
