I've "rescued" an old photograph of H. D. KRUGGEL which was taken at the
Kirk Studio in Mason City, Iowa. The photograph appears to have been taken
in the 1890's with the young man in the photograph identified as 21 years
old at the time. In addition to his name and age, someone has also written
"Grandpa" on the back of the photograph. Based on limited research I was
able to locate the following information regarding Herman D. KRUGGEL and his
Herman D. KRUGGEL b. Aug 1871 in Germany. Herman married Anna H. DREYER (b.
29 Aug 1875 in Zwischenahn, Germany) on 22 Feb 1895 in IA and together they
had three children including, Alma; Olga; and Paul G. KRUGGEL, all born
between 1895 and 1909 in Rockwell, IA. Census records provide the
1900 census of Bath Township, IA:
Herman KRUGGEL, age 28, born Aug 1871, married 5 years, born Germany,
parents born Germany, to USA 1885, a Farmer

living, born Germany, parents born Germany, to USA 1873

I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can
once again be in the possession of family. If you are a member of this
family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
