Diane's Spare Time
If you change your mind, my place is open this weekend. I have a wedding shower to go to on Saturday. I think it will be empty the holiday weekend also. Bob can't get any extra time and I won't drive on the Friday night and Monday. The traffic is WAY too nuts for me!

When are you going up there? I know the smoke irritates you. If no one is at my place, you can stay there.

Joseph Herman Mauhs 1858-1915
FINDAGRAVE has the photograph of Anna Mauhs (Austria July 1862/1934)"Mother" which you so kindly provided.

But I have biographical info on her husband Joseph Herman Mauhs (1858-1915)"FATHER", whose photo I found on usgenweb-Wisconsin

Joseph Mauhs was a teamster who specialized, for several years, in transporting rotunda panoramas from city to city, putting them up and taking them down. Rotunda panoramas were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas. Joseph Mauhs is mentioned each year 1886-1893 in the F.W.Heine diaries which I found in the display case of Milwaukee County Historical Society. These diaries are the only narrative of a panorama company, that of William Wehner (1847-1928) of Chicago who built his panorama studio in downtown Milwaukee. From 1885-88 Wehner produced 2 units of BATTLE OF ATLANTA, 2 units of MISSIONARY RIDGE & LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN and 3 units of JERUSALEM ON THE DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION. The Heine diaries are as important to the history of 19th century rotunda panorama as the letters of Theo and Vincent Van Gogh are important to the history of post impressionism. But what is REALLY NEAT is that Joseph Mauhn not only worked for William Wehner, but A.T.Andreas, and Reed & Gross of Chicago, and helped set up the BERNESE OBERLAND panorama on the Midway Plaisance during the World Columbian Exposition, and brought Paul Philippoteaux NIAGARA FALLS from Chicago to Milwaukee for Howard H. Gross to be repainted as NIAGARA IN WINTER and then returned to London. So, if you could please install Joseph Mauhs' photo to FINDAGRAVE, I would be de-lighted to fill in the details.Many thanks

RE: Ross Family
I didn't see the picture on the tombstone until I got home. It might be William. His tombstone was on that side.
