The Austin Leyendecker-Siegmund relatives frequently visited Fredericksburg
and often stayed at the Kammlah's on Main Street. Mom and several

first night near the Y in Oak Hill. The family wagon (great-grandparents)
wasn't large enough for the whole family, so many of their children walked
Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.

These photos were found in my Mom's estate in 2002. They are black
& white 3-1/2" square photos processed at Welgenhausen's in Fredericksburg
