(Not-So-) Wordless Wedding Wednesday: August Peter Pape & Rose Anna Alles

August Peter Pape (1893-1947), my first cousin two times removed (he is the son of my great-grandfather John Pape's brother Lorenz), married Rose Anna Alles (1893-1929) on September 19, 1919, in Wilmette, Illinois.  This photo was provided by Mary Kay Schmidt, the granddaughter of August's sister Mary.

Rose and August had two children, Delores (born about 1926) and Charles M. (born about 1928).  After Rose's untimely death (she is buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery in Northbrook, Illinois), August married German immigrant Frances DeMuth in 1933.  They had at least one daughter, Lois, born about 1934.

August was born in Dusseldorf, Germany, and arrived in Boston in 1913.  He was naturalized in 1922 and became a painter and decorator.  He is buried at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines, Illinois.
