A beautiful photograph and a family gathering of the Nathan clan at the family home in Far Rockaway, Queens near the Atlantic Ocean in the late Summer of 1939. My cousin Ruth (Ripin) Juda was kind enough to send me years ago the attached note below to help me identify everyone in the photograph. She did a great job and I thank her.

Standing left to right:
My uncle Edwin Nathan (brother of my grandmother Blanche) holding his dog, my cousin Robert Ripin (son of Sadie Nathan & Seymour Ripin), uncle Maurice Rippe (husband of Winnie), aunt Sadie (Nathan) Ripin (sister to my grandmother Blanche), cousin Benet Ripin (son of Sadie & Seymour), my grandfather Maximilian "Max" Hesslein (husband to Blanche) and uncle Jack Tyroler (husband to aunt Minnie (Nathan) Tyroler.

Sitting left to right:
My grandmother Blanche Rose (Nathan) Hesslein, cousin Ruth (Juda) Ripin (daughter of Sadie and Seymour), aunt Winifred "Winnie" (Nathan) Rippe and aunt Minnie (Nathan) Tyroler who is the sister of my great grandfather Benjamin Nathan.

As Ruth's note says:
Missing are my mother Bernice Lane (Erickson) Hesslein, Ruth's sister Louise Ripin and our cousins Edith Rippe Weber and Benjamin "Ben" Rippe.

Photograph by Ruth's father, Seymour Ripin.
