1898 Photo of the George Werner family of Somerset County

Click here to see a large, zoomable, non-annotated 1507KB version of the following photo. The first time I saw this photo was back in the 1960s (I think) in the "Meyersdale Republican" newspaper. That was a long time ago, but if I remember correctly the photo was titled "Gnagy Pony Farm", and the photo caption in the newspaper identified at least some of the people in the photo. The identifications I made on this web page are based on my understanding of what is written on page 59 of Paul E. Werner's 1996 book "Siefertshausen to Somerset". The photo was passed down to me through the Adam Dietle family line. I'm sorry the names I added to the photo are fuzzy; I saved the photo in the wrong file format. Lannie Dietle 8-19-2021
