Circa 1898 Photo of the George Werner family of Somerset County

The first picture below is a low resolution copy of a large framed picture that was given to me by my uncle Ralph Dietle, who is the youngest son of my grandfather Irvin H. Dietle. For high resolution copies, follow the links in the bulleted list. The newspaper clipping below the first picture is from the estate of my mother, Estalene (Korns) Dietle, wife of Irvin H. Dietle's son Roy E. Dietle. I remember seeing that picture in the "Meyersdale Republican" newspaper at the home of Irvin Dietle, Sr. when I was young. Lannie Dietle, February 7, 2023

    The identifications I made on the following image are based on my understanding of what is written on page 59 of Paul E. Werner's 1996 book "Siefertshausen to Somerset". I'm sorry the names I added to the photo are fuzzy; I saved the photo in the wrong file format.
