While searching for a historical occasion that occurred on this date, I ran across the death date of Ida Emilie Martha (Mueller) Doering…..April 5, 1894. She was the first wife of Wilhelm Doering. A few days ago, I posted a photo of Wilhelm’s second wedding to Maria Schmidt and asked about Maria’s white veil worn with a dark dress. Well, lo and behold, I found a photo of Wilhelm’s first wedding to Ida Mueller (the left photo), and it once again shows a “black and white” wedding.
I welcome any comments you might have as you compare these two photos which include the same groom, but different brides.
