I recently visited some of my cousins in Ontario. Although we had never met before, we had been in contact by email, and they were kind enough to allow me to scan many of their old family photos. I found many gems among their collection including the one shown below.
This snapshot was taken in Stevensville, Ontario. I’m not sure of the occasion but it appears to have been formal. Three of these young men are sons of Christian Climenhage, my great-great grandfather. This undated photo was taken prior to 1906 because that year Ivy Climenhage died of Tuberculosis.
