I found this photo among the Greulich family photos. The dark-haired couple on the left is Elmer and Lillian (Snyder) Greulich.  I’m not sure who the others are, but I believe they are relatives of Elmer.

Mary Catherine Waage, daughter of Dr. Charles Theodore and Lydia S. (Eshbach) Waage, was born 27 Oct 1877 in Pennsburg, Montgomery county, Pennsylvania. She married Edwin Joshua Wieder.

Mary Louisa Hocker, daughter of Johannes and Elizabeth (Henry) Hocker, married Samuel Hoch/Hoke 22 Nov 1860. She was born circa 1840/42 in Hockersville, Dickinson Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Photo courtesy of Elizabeth Hoke

I  labeled this photo Mary and Ethel Hocker. Ethel Hocker was the daughter of Albert Curtin and Lillian (Leedy) Hocker. She married twice, first to Harry Thomas Allen and second to Wesley Edward Foster, Jr. I am presuming the Mary Hocker refers to Mary (Curran) Hocker, wife of Levi Ainsley Hocker and Ethel’s sister-in-law.
