Nellie Marquardt Gaskill

Nellie (Marquardt) Gaskill

This is Nellie. Her photograph was taken in Fort Wayne, Indiana. On the back is written “Nellie Gaskill (Marquardt). For research purposes, Marquardt was assumed to be her maiden name. There are several Nellie Gaskill’s in the Fort Wayne, IN area – but only one with the maiden name Marquardt – and what a great name that is!

Nellie was born in Indiana about 1896. She married Ira C. Gaskill (his second wife) in February of 1918. Her parents were Jacob and Emma Barfeel Marquardt. The couple resided in Allen county (the same county as Fort Wayne) in the 1920 and 1940 census. They lived in Huntington, IN in 1930.

This is an absolutely beautiful picture. I found it on eBay and it can be purchased if anyone is interested – here’s the link.
