Group Photo -Front Row 2nd from left is Clara Erbland (nee Pollock), wife of Herman A. Erbland.  First row 3rd from left is Bessie M. Erbland, wife of John Otto Erbland.  First man from right (standing behind girl in plaid dress) is Herman A. Erbland.  The man standing directly behind Bessie M. Erbland is her husband, John Otto Erbland. This photo is probably a key 'clue' to Erbland family history. If we could learn more about the people in this photo, I suspect that we would then learn a lot more about how the Erbland family has dispersed.
