August Ludwig Heerboth no

August Ludwig Heerboth no doubt was Ludwig August Heerboth (1860–1945). He never used his first name so it is possible that the photographer reversed his first and middle names. My great-grandfather was a student at Concordia Seminary in Springfield, Illinois. He graduated in 1888, and spent his time in the ministry in a congregation in Wheaton, Illinois.

His grandson, Richard Heerboth, lived in North LIttle Rock.

L A Heerboth's father, Gottlieb Ludwig Wilhelm Heerboth, was born in Germany in 1819 and died in 1879. I have never seen a picture of my great-great grandfather. The man in the picture certainly looks older than 28, doesn't he?

Here is a snapshot of my great-grandfather in later years:
