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:
1900 WI Outagamie Hortonia Dist 86
Elsner, Ernest born Aug 1842 age 57 married 28yrs he and parents born Germany immigrated 1860 naturalized farmer
       Louisa B born May 1852 age 47 had 13 children with 6 still living she and parents born Germany immigrated 1855
       Bernhardt born Sept 1879 age 20
       Oscar born Jan 1881 age 19
       Cora born June 1883 age 16
       Emma born Dec 1886 age 13
       Adela born Sept 1888 age 11
All children born Wisconsin.

1880 WI Outagamie Hortonia Dist 127
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
       Gottfried age 79 he and parents born Prussia and is Ernest's father

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.
