Kost Family

I was doing a google search of my family and found your photo, in which you thought the people might be the Kost Family of Ramey. I'm not sure if those are my ancestors in the photo or not, but my grandmother was Kathryn Kost of Ramey. Her father, Martin, immigrated from Czechoslovakia. It'd be nice to talk about the family if you have information. Thank you.
