Ella Schilter (later Wiegand), Bucky's mother, is
at the lower left. The photo is of her church choir up
The "Big Wiegand Reunion". Bucky is sitting on
there, third from left, front row, age 9. The middle and back
rows have Bucky's dad, Bapop, his dad's nine siblings, and
various spouses and family friends and cousins. Bucky's
Grandma Wiegand (i.e., Katie's great-great-grandmother) (she
who is responsible for the ten children) is at the right end of
the second row. And we think that's great-great-grandpa
Wiegand standing off at the right end. The reunion was up
in Ontario (where much of the family came from), on
the shores of Lake Huron, the summer before Bucky's parents
bought the land that later became Wiegand's Lake Park.
Howard (his brother), Eileen (his sister), Robert ("Bucky"),
looking spiffy in a tie. This might be at the park - Bucky
was just about this age (10 years old) when his parents
bought the property.
Picnicking near the future location of the yellow swing.
The lake will someday be down behind the picnickers.
(At least, we think that's the direction the camera's facing
Bucky, around age 18. He has already developed
the unique hair style.
Bucky, in his early 20's
Bucky ca age 20, Ella Wiegand (his mom), Howard (his brother),
home on leave, during WWII. They're standing near where the
yellow swing is now, looking towards the dam (yes, the lake has
been built!) Bucky served from 1942 to 1946 as an ensign in
Wilfred W ("Bapop") and Ella Wiegand, Bucky's
and the founders of Wiegand's Lake. Photo from about 1960.
