Lori left a message on the blog and I encouraged her to send me an email.

Hello
My sister Beatrice googled our family names and your picture of the Stainers came up. Imagine our surprise. Betty Roska York was my mom. She died in 1996. Adolph & Betty Stainer Roska were her parents. Mom's grandfather did live with them and she adored him. I'm pretty sure he's the one on the lower right. My mother said they were related to the Stainer violin makers.
It's pretty amazing all the trouble you went through to track down family members. I can reimburse you for postage. Feeling grateful. Thank you!
Lori

William Stainer, my Great Grandfather, Bettie Stainer Roska, Bill Roska & Betty Roska York, my Mom.

Lori sent a photo.  I asked her permission to use the photo.

Hi Connie
This is a picture of William Stainer, my Great Grandfather, Bettie Stainer Roska, Bill Roska & Betty Roska York, my Mom. I'm looking for more info on the family. I have it but where is the question.
Mom always said we were related to Leslie Howard, Ashley from Gone With the Wind. He was actually a Stainer. 
The genealogy I know goes
Betty Roska York
Bettie Stainer Roska
William A Stainer
Anton Stainer
Jacob Stainer
John Jacob Stainer
Thaddeus Stainer
Paul Stainer
I didn't know that some of the relatives were Swiss born so I learn that from your group. Either way thank you this has been interesting.
I'll look for the brother's names as I have another picture somewhere.
Lori


Hi Connie
The picture came today. William is on seated on the right I believe. Thank you for you time and efforts. 
I'll send some money for postage etc soon. 
It's a good thing that you do. Keep it up.
Lori

Thanks for stopping by.

I look as if graduation was very boring.  This might have been good if I had kept my eyes open.

Sothers of Brainerd Minnesota were the photographers.  So I will guess that Joanie is from the Brainerd area.

Elbert Heinsohn, Helen Hirz, Quinten Wallace, Estella Hirz, Nina Hardman
Bertha Dieckmann, Jean Starks (V Pres), Dorothy Andrews

I think that this class may be from Iowa, Nebraska or North Dakota as they all have a Sioux County.
