Mystery Monday: Emelia and Aunt Lizzie

Emelia and Aunt Lizzie, possibly Peoria, Illinois.

Helbling Family (Click for Family Tree)

This photo was found in the Helbling Family photo album. It may have been taken in the 1930s. It is not apparent who Emelia and Aunt Lizzie are, but evidently they were related to either Helblings (or possibly Beerbowers).

Not sure where the Peoria, Illinois association is from- unsure if it was told to me when I scanned the photo or if images nearby were labeled as Peoria. I do not know of family living in Peoria, but that will be another mystery to solve.
