My Aunt Ann's middle name was Goulding. She married Austrian-born psychiatrist James Meier when she was in her fifties.
Speaking of Americanization, my grandmother Dix (Lell's wife) was Annie Stakeley. While researching her ancestry, I was surprised to learn she was descended from Austrian emigrant Johann Stockli, who Americanized his name after settling in Pennsylvania.
When I went back to double check Stockli's first name (which was Johann, Americanized to John), I discovered his wife's surname had also been Americanized. Stockli/Stakely was married to Nancy Grove, who was a great granddaughter of Hans Graf, who was born about 1661 in Baretswil, Switzerland and died May 5, 1746 in New Holland, PA.
73. Anna Goulding (6) Stakely was born 1877, and died
24 January 1978. . Died

*Lell's daughter had the same name and nickname as his older sister.
Dollie and her older sister Dimple, referring
to their new baby brother, Daniel, mispronounced it as "Lell".
He grew fond of his moniker and took it as part of his name.

I recognize the azalea bush but not the people. It's possible
the lady in the "sweetest flower" picture is my grandmother, Annie Stakely
Dix, wife of L. D. Dix. She has similar facial features to
Annie Dix, but I don't have any photographs of her that young. By
the time I was old enough to have recollections of her, she was well into
her fifties. The lady in the photo seems to be in her thirties or
Looks as though there is another photo in that set with a gentleman in the azaleas and that one has a caption "Azaleas in bloom in Mobile--at LD Dix's in Mobile, AL". I agree that the lady looks like ("Grandma Dix" to me. She died in 1978 at 101 (would have been 102 in August of that year).
