Horstman family group photo - Possibly taken at the passing of August Frederick Horstman in 1920? This photo seems to be taken circa 1928 based on the appearance of Carl Edgar Horstman (b 1915) in similar photos. I do not show any immediate family members passing in the 1928 time frame.

Per Woodrow “Woody” Horstmann (Big Rock, IA), Edward A. Horstman lived in Big Rock, IA. and was the milk man for many years. He lived in the house just accross the street and slightly North from the Horstmann Market in Big Rock, IA. Paul and Dora Horstman (Ed’s Brother) use to come visit him.

From Connie Horstman 01-19-08. Edward joined the Army at the start of WW 1. She has a postcard booklet from Ed when he was in Germany, all German, and says she can’t read a word of it. Also pictures from then.
