Emma Konzen Smith

While visiting with my great aunt Kay this summer, I looked through a very old photo album that belonged to my great grandmother Ella Kuske Konzen.  In the pages of the photo album, I found a photo of Emma Konzen Smith, her husband William Smith, and their five daughters.

My auntie Kay has always told me that Emma was her dad John Charles Konzen’s favorite sister and one of her earliest memories is of her family visiting Emma in Chicago.  Kay says she thought Emma’s daughters were movie stars because they were so pretty and fashionable.

Emma Konzen & her husband William Smith with their daughters Hazel, Beulah, Anastasia, Emma, and Alice (I don't know which daughter is which in the photo) in Chicago circa the 1920s.

I thought I’d share this photo of Emma, William, and their family with all of you.  Enjoy.
