I have two original Cabinet Card photographs of “John Uthe and his first wife” and “Kate Uthe” which I would like to get back to family members. Each photo was taken by the Lenz Bros. Photographers in Dubuque (Dubuque Co.) IA.
Photo of “John Uthe and first wife” was taken at their wedding in about 1880-1885, and both John and his wife look about 25-30.
Photo of Kate Uthe shows her at her first communion, wearing a white dress and veil, holding a prayer book and rosary. She looks to be about age 10, and it is my theory that this was taken about 1895-1900, based on the type of photo.
I was not able to locate John Uthe and daughter Kate in the 1900 census in Iowa, so I cannot verify dates of birth. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you are related to John Uthe, and Kate Uthe.
