Mystery Solved

I guess we didn't have to look to far to find the original of this portrait of the Samuel and Verena. It hangs in a woman's home in Bounitful, Utah. We are still looking for someone that may have information on the other picture of the young kids and their grandmother Weber. It has a noticeable tear down one side of the picture.

Samuel & Verena Goldenberger Weber

Apparently the original of this portrait of Samuel and Verena hung in a beautiful victorian home in Freedom Wyoming USA. One day the woman living in this home had a visitor and they talked of the picture hanging on the wall. She voiced to the visitor that she was no longer interested in having it hang there and told the visitor that she could take it. We are hoping that the original still hangs on someones wall.

Weber Family Swiss Roots

I thought that if I post Weber family data that it would help with our search. The Family information starts in Switzerland to Freedom, Wyoming, USA. Charles Samuel Weber is a son of Samuel Weber and Verena Goldenberger Weber both born in Switzerland. Charles Samuel Weber their son (who is my great grandfather) was born in Providence, Utah, USA. Hopefully you don't get so confused you give up on me. This family group sheet includes the family of Samuel Weber and Verena Goldenberger Weber. Enjoy.

Weber Family

I was asked a few weeks ago by my Aunt to help her put together a family history book. I was so excited when she asked because I have been interested in old things including old photographs my entire life. I was amazed at how many old pictures she was able to put together in such a short time. It has been incredibly fulfilling to try to get to know these important individuals in my life (even though some I have never met) They still have made an impact in my life. My hope in creating this blog is to possibly find any relatives with information to continue our search for our family. I will start with this picture that is not complete. I am hoping that someone may see it and know where the original is and possibly share it with us.
These individuals are:
Lena Weber (girl standing) Robert Weber (boy standing)
Walter Weber (boy sitting) Ida Weber? (girl standing)
Charles Weber - My Great Grandfather - (young boy in a dress standing) Their grandmother Maria Weber (sitting)
