This group portrait is of Francis William Reitz Herold and Aletta Catharina Herold (née Barry) together with their children and what is assumed to be the children’s partners and children.

The photograph was found within the photo albums belonging to Patricia Kathleen Frayne (née Herold) after her death. Unfortunately is was not well preserved.

Herold Family Photo, circa 1912

Identifiable people in the picture:

In the back row, the first lady on the left is Maria Hester Johanna Herold. The man to her left is presumed to be her husband.
Standing next to her is one of Francis and Aletta’s sons – unsure which one – and presumably his daughter. Next to him is either his wife, or Aletta Cornelia Herold but it is difficult to tell as the photo is torn right across her face.
The man standing on the right of the back row is another of the sons (unsure which), and presumably his daughter.
Seated in the front row is yet another son (also unknown) with presumably his daughter on his knee and possibly his wife next to him.
Francis William Reitz Herold and Aletta Catharina Herold née Barry sit in the middle, with a granddaughter standing in front of Aletta.
The lady seated on the right of Aletta is presumed to be the wife of the son standing just behind her.
Two granddaughters are seated in front of Francis.

The one son of Francis and Aletta that is missing from this picture is Joseph Francis Barry Herold. If the lady in the back row wearing white is not their daughter Aletta Cornelia, then she too is missing from the picture.

It is not known when this picture was taken, but the people all look very similar in age to the picture taken around 1912 to celebrate Francis and Aletta’s Golden Wedding Anniversary, so we can assume it was around that time.
