Anton Wieser and Elizabeth Winter and their descendants

The family of Anton Wieser and Elizabeth Winter Wieser came from Volkertshausen, Baden, German to the US in 1857 and settled in Dubuque County, Iowa.  Their children Andrew, Theodore, Martin and Frances remained in Iowa. Their oldest son Vincent eventually moved to Texas.  The grandchildren and great grandchildren of Anton and Elizabeth are spread across the U.S. from Massachusetts to California and from Washington to Texas.  Richard Wieser is descended from John Andrew Wieser the only surviving son of Andrew Wieser and Mary Graf.  The family is discussed in the Wieser Family Article.

Weiser Family, the woman in the center back is probably Johanna Wieser holding Andrew.  Next to her on the right is John A. Wieser.  Marie, Charlotte and Lester are the first three children from left to right.  The remaining individuals are currently unidentified but I would guess they are family.
