|Notes||The original negative envelope is labeled Roswild or Roschild. With this limited information we cannot be sure, but suspect this is the family of Moses Rothschild, president of Black Hawk Clay Manufacturing Company and Secretary/Treasurer of D. Rothschild Grain Company. The 1910 census records Moses as age 44, wife Caroline B. as 39, daughter Caroline A. as 14, son Louis B. as 10 and daughter Augusta as age 8. They resided at 503 East 14th Street in Davenport in 1910. |
