Fritz and Caroline were married May

Those of us who are old enough will remember that Johann became John...Frida spelled her name Frieda...August was, of course, known as Gus...Bernhard may have never divulged his full name as he chose to be known only as Ben...and Lise spelled her name Liese.
The picture above is the home 1 1/2 miles southeast of Emma where they reared their family. Below is the home they built in Emma in 1924 on their retirement from farming and where they would spend the rest of their lives. Both homes are still there and occupied.
The family photo below was taken in 1921 at the home of John and Florence Lange in Dunksburg MO. Left to right, they are: Ben, August, John, Fritz, Caroline, Lena, Liese, Frieda, and Dora
The following picture of Fritz and Caroline Lange was taken in 1940 in the yard of their home in Emma.
The picture below was probably among the last, if not THE last, taken of Fritz and Caroline Lange as it was taken in 1946, the year before his death.
