Yops Family

Just received some pictures from my cousin, Chris. Our grandparents were brother and sister - my grandpa, August Yops, and her grandmother, Elsie Yops Kramer.  Both were the children of August Daniel Yops and Emma Marie Berndt Yops. The handwriting in the picture, below, is Elsie's.

The below picture of my great-grandmother, Emma, is a new one that I just received. Emma died in 1913 after cancer of the uterus. I can't help but think of what she must have had to endure not only in treatment, but the diagnosis of the cancer. I'm not sure what type of medicinal processes were available to her at that time.

Here is a picture of August and Emma with their family (before 1905, when my grandpa would be born). This picture shows  my grandpa's sisters - many who would pass away before their adult years. Elsie is the youngest. Hattie (on the left) would die in the flu epidemic of 1918 and Mattie would die young as well. Again, the writing on this picture is Elsie's, and I believe that the woman next to Emma (on her right) is her sister, Doris. I'm not sure, though.  And, I'm not sure about the woman and man to Emma's right.

Sisters - (L to R) Elsie, Mattie, and Leona

Picture of Hattie Yops LaBeau.

My grandpa's brother, Arthur (Art) Yops

These are pictures of Elsie Yops Kramer and her husband George. George was an owner of Kramer-Eberts Pontiac dealership in River Rouge, Mi. My grandpa, August, as a car painter there.

And, this is a picture of Aunt Nora and Uncle Freddy. I'm not sure how they fit in - any information is welcomed!
