These are old pictures from the F.W. Cornelius, Sr. and Edward J. Kostal families. These two gentlemen were my paternal and maternal grandfathers and I want to share these old photos with members of my family located around the country...and with my extended family in Austria and the Czech Republic.
Photo of my great uncle, Lou Helebrant, with his wife, Josephine Novy Helebrant. Lou was the half-brother of my maternal grandfather, Edward Kostal. Lou and Josie farmed in the Ravenna, Nebraska area for many years. Josie passed away in 1942 and Lou passed away in 1971. I met him on one occasion.
Lou is the great grandfather of my half-second cousin (once removed), Sarah Johnson, whom I met through this humble weblog.
