If anyone has connections to a Gottfried Elsner with a son, Ernest, there is a wonderful Victorian photo album on ebay right now.
There is a photo that would have been taken sometime before 1900 of Ernest's family in front of their home in Outagamie, and several other photos on this ad.
Quick search of census:

Elsner Ernest age 39 he and parents born Prussia farmer
Louise age 29 she and parents born Prussia
Bernard 8 mos born in Sept in WI

Wish I could find something like this on my family :-)And, I have no connection to the person who has it listed on eBay. Just hate to see this kind of item get out of family hands.
