Hausman - Hollenbach - Gross Photos (ca. 1900)

I attended a flea market near Washington DC and purchased two old photos (ca. 1900) with the hopes of returning them to an interested family member. The first is 2"x3" in size and identified on the reverse as "Valeria Hausman Hollenbach." The photographer was Hunsicker & Warmkessel, Allentown, PA. Through research on I found Valeria Hausman married Thomas B. Hollenbach and lived in Lehigh County.
The second is a 4.5"x6.5" cabinet photo from about the same time period and identified on the reverse as "Adora Gross." Research on Ancestry shows Adora to be the sister of the woman in the first photo, Valeria, and that she married Oliver J. Gross. The photographer is identified as Lenharts, Allentown, PA.
Both ladies are buried in Neffs Uniion Cemetery, Lehigh County.
Feel free to contact me if you have a true genealogical interest in these people and we can discuss a transfer in ownership of the photos. Enjoy!
