       This group photograph was also found in the trunk belonging to Johanna NYLANDER and Charles Gottlieb RAUCH.

       The photograph was sent by Mary Ann BLUST. She believes it may the the family of Chas NELSON, who was a cousin of Charles RAUCH. Chas was a trick rider and may have been in the circus.
