Oliver Edwin Steinkamp and Raymond Edward Steinkamp of Richmond, Indiana

Oliver Edwin Steinkamp and Raymond Edward Steinkamp of Richmond, Indiana

I found this photo in a flea market in Crystal Hill, Arkansas. It has the following on the back "Oliver 11 Raymond 5 Steinkamfs". The studio is photographer M.H. Watts of Richmond, Indiana. After research I believe these two boys are the children of Frank H. Steinkamp (born 1852 in Ohio) and Anna Marie Crivel (born abt 1853 in Indiana). Frank was a plasterer.

They had a sister Mary Elma Steinkamp (born Apr 1877)

Oliver apparently was co-owner of a horticulture business called "Baur and Steinkamp" in Indianapolis. He lived for a time in Washington Township in Marion County, Indiana.

Raymond moved to Topeka, KS where he managed a Woolworth's Store and also lived in Kansas City where he worked as a confectioner.
