    This photograph was kindly provided by Karen Stanbary, a researcher of the Weyer Family. She identified the people in the photograph, left to right, as Matie and Vernon Anderson (friends of the Weyers), Anton Weyer, Selma Weyer, and George Weyer (Anton's brother). She also noted George and his wife, Inez, were witnesses at the marriage of Selma and Anton. My estimate is the photograph was taken in about 1940.
