I recently purchased the subject undated studio group portrait of three young women, two boys, and a girl. It is identified on the back of the mount:

"'Dad' Joe Gleissner
Aunt Sophia Bahr
Aunt Anna Haberman Uncle Frank Gleissner
Aunt Cecelia Reidel
Aunt Mary Haberman"

Joe, Sophia, Anna, Frank, and Cecelia are siblings, and I believe Mary is a cousin of theirs. I found the Gleissner family included in at least one Public Member Tree posted on ancestry.com. The family is listed in the 1895 Kansas State census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS; the 1900 U.S. Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS; and the 1910 U.S. Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS. The Gleissner family members shown in the photo were children of a farmer, Joseph Gleissner, born 25 Apr 1851 in Johnnsdorf, Austria (immigrated 1879), died 4 Dec 1936 in Olmitz, KS; and Cecelia Clara Schneider, born 14 Nov 1857 in Tobruebenz, Mahren, Austria (immigrated 1875), died 17 Aug 1937.

Cecelia Gleissner, born 10 Apr 1884 in Barton Co., KS, died 22 Jun 1973 in Hoisington, Barton Co., KS, married a farmer, Frank Franz V. Reidel, born 1872, died 1 Jul 1958 in Hoisington, KS. The couple had 5 children. The family is listed in the 1910 U.S. Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS; the 1915 and 1925 Kansas State Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS.

Anna V. Gleissner, born 8 Apr 1888 in KS, died 3 Nov 1920 in Great Bend, Barton Co., KS, married a farmer, Henry W. Haberman, born 22 Dec 1880 near Albert, KS, died 4 Oct 1970 in Wichita, KS. The couple had at least 5 children. The family is listed in the 1915 Kansas State Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS; and the 1920 U.S. Census data foe Great Bend (resided at 2038 Kansas Street), Barton Co., KS.

Joseph F. Gleissner, born 1 May 1890 in Olmitz, KS, died 13 May 1970 in Barton Co., KS, married Stephania Thersia Fannie Bahr, born 25 Dec 1899 in KS, died 12 Mar 1934 in Barton Co., KS. Joseph was a farmer. The couple had at least 4 children. The family is listed in the 1920 and 1930 Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS.

Sophia B. Gleissner, born 2 Mar 1894 in KS, died 13 Nov 1990, married a farmer, John J. Bahr, born 25 Mar 1887 in Olmitz, KS, died 14 Jun 1965 in Hoisington, Barton Co., KS. The couple had at least 6 children. The family is listed in the 1920 and 1930 U.S. Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS.

Frank Bernard Gleissner, born 7 Jun 1898 in Olmitz, KS, died 4 Jul 1981 in Great Bend, Barton Co., KS, married Josephine M. Josie Haberman, born 8 May 1902 in Olmitz, KS, died 21 Feb 1993 in Great Bend, Barton Co., KS. Frank was a farmer. The couple had a least 3 children. The family is listed in the 1920 and 1930 U.S. Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS.

Finally, the last person, identified as Mary Haberman, is probably the same person as Marie Haberman, born 22 Dec 1899 in Olmitz, KS, died Aug 1984 in Lonmont, Boulder Co., CO, the daughter of Joseph Frank Haberman, born Nov 1870 in Austria (immigrated 1875), died 1938, and Mary Louise Weiser, born Sep 1876 in Austria (immigrated 1880), died 1958. Mary married Ray Kevan (1903-1980). She is listed in the 1900 U.S. Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS; the 1905 and 1915 Kansas State Census data for Walnut Township, Barton Co., KS; and the 1930 U.S. Census data for Great Bend (resided at 2638 Kansas Street), Barton Co., KS.
