Of course, the messages have been flying back and forth between us. We’re having a great time sharing stories and photos and talking through our knowledge. There are family stories that Joe has passed along and some he’s still gathering from living individuals. I plan to write them down for anyone who would be interested. This Risch line is very large and I know there are others out there who would enjoy the history as much as we do.
For now, I thought I would share this wonderful family photo that Cousin Joe was kind enough to forward to me. The lady in the center is Caroline Risch Busald, my great grand aunt and Joe’s great grandmother. Her husband, Frank Busald, is seated on her left. The entire family group is listed under the photo. I believe this photo is taken around 1910 – 1915, judging from the ages of the family members. Frank and Caroline moved from the farm in Dearborn County to Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1914. Maybe that was the occasion when they decided to get everyone together for the family photo.
