New Pictures:

Mary Brenner - which one
From Steve Dippel: 
 I have a picture that my grandpa Frank Dippel (1895-1981) took (see above).  It is labeled Mary Brenner; she would have been a cousin to my grandpa and lived in Evansville/St. Philip area.  
Do you know this Mary, or have any of the information on her? I'd be interested in her birth, death dates, and family information (so I can tie her picture to a person in my tree).
