Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Irma Anita Vogel at age 2 years, 1905. Another child posed on a chair. It was a popular way to pose children. The photo was made by Roberts in Henderson, KY.

Irma was possibly a relative of Gertrude Posz. I found a record of Irma Anita Vogel of Henderson, KY having passed away in 1918 due to mitral insufficiency as a result of infected tonsils. On the certificate of death, her mother is listed as Emma Posz. Emma Posz and her other daughter Anna also passed away in 1909. Anna was an infant, so it is possible some kind of childbed fever took both mother and child close together.
