Ludwig and Maria Magdalena Bott Family
The image below is a photograph of my great grandparents taken in Norka. Ludwig Bott is seated on the right and is holding a cane. His wife Maria Magdalena Bott (nee Kniss) is seated next to him. My grandmother Catherine Gruen (nee Bott) is standing behind Ludwig and Maria Magdalena Bott. My father, Henry Gruen (Green), is the little boy in front standing next to Ludwig Bott. My father took his stepfather's last name of Gruen (Green). My father's cousin Henry Peter Bott (age about 17) is standing to the left in the picture. We have identified two of my father's aunts as married to a Henkel, and a Urbach. My father was born in 1903. I am speculating that the picture was taken about 1906 or 1907. Please contact me if you have any information about this family.
