Joseph and Juliana Schmidt, and 5 of their 6 children. The oldest, Anna (1879), is at the back. From the left, there is Frank (1889), then Joseph (dad), Juliana (mom), and Carl (1887). Dad is holding Louie (1891), and Mom is holding Marie (1893). The missing child is probably Joe Jr. They would have more children after this photo was taken.
