Michaelis Mother and Son


The bride in this photo above is Eva Elizabeth Margheim (1882-1950), the oldest sister of John Margheim (1900-1978), my paternal grandfather. Her husband is Johann Friedrich "Fred" Michaelis (1878-1965). Aunt Eva and Uncle Fred were born in Weissenmuller, Samara Province, Seelmann District, Russia. Pictured at top left is Maria Magdalena Michaelis, the mother of Fred. I have no details about her, except these words that were written on the back of the photograph: "Starved to death." How sad.
