    A Wedding Anniversary Photograph of William and Helena Vandalia (Thomas) Brumm
    This photograph of my great grandparents was probably taken in about 1898 at the 25th wedding anniversary of William and Helena Brumm (they appear older than 24 and 19 years old, respectively).

    William and Helena were married April 1, 1873. They farmed in rural Des Moines County, Iowa, near the town of Kingston. They raised seven children. A biography of William, his family, and Helena and some of her family, was written in 1905 in the book, A Biographical Review of Des Moines County, Iowa.
