The Haas Family of Indianda

This is the Haas family. I LOVE the amount of wonderful information someone provided on the back of the photo (also pictured). But it still took a little digging to find them. Here’s the scoop:
William Haas was 46 in the picture, born around 1849 in Pennsylvania. Susan (Sue) Reeves, his wife, was 35. She was born in 1858 in Indiana. Will died before 1900, because in the 1900 Richland, IN census Susan was a widowed landlord living with 3 of her daughters – Hattie, Mable, and Leah. They were still living in Richland in 1910, but with the addition of Susan’s mother, Harriet Reeves also from Indiana.

I absolutely love this photo and can’t wait to let potential descendants know about it. I do own it; if any family member is interesting in actually owning the photo please let me know.
