My GG Grandmother, Catharine (Auxer) Niess (on the right) and her older sister Anna (Auxer) Lehman in their Mourning Clothes. I don't know if the funeral was for Ann's husband, Leander who died in 1912 or Catharine's husband, Ephraim who died in 1915. If I had to guess, I would guess Catharine's husband, only because of the look in her eyes and the dark circles under her eyes.

Just as an aside, I have that mourning scarf today. I was given it by another descendant, and given a copy of this picture from still another descendant from two different branches of the family.
