Duerksen Family Photos

On the back of the photo of the little baby girl it says, "Thelma Jean Duerksen, this girl is missing Mrs. Mary (Duerksen) Wiebe Sister."


Information sent to me by Greg Pilgrim concerning Thelma Jean Duerksen states:  " Thelma Jean Duerksen, the daughter of Abraham J  and Clara Duerksen who died in 1922."  
The information on the back of the photo appears to be wrong.

If anyone has any information concerning Thelma Jean Duerksen please let me know. 



The following photos were taken in Bessie, Oklahoma at a family reunion. I'm not sure of the date.
