Unidentified couple--photographed in Hartington, NE
I bought a bunch of old photos from an antique shop, and this one was taken in Hartington. Most photos in the bunch are from Lancaster, PA. There are only a couple of photos labeled, and the names are: Christine Lichty, Mary Lichty, and Barbara Market. Can anyone help identify this couple?

S.S. Cisney Children
This photo is from the Glass Plate Negative collection at the Cedar County Museum. It was identified as children of S.S. Cisney. There were three generations of S.S. Cisneys which lived in Nebraska. My best guess would be that these are the two oldest children of Stephen and Marjory Cisney. I would love it if someone could confirm my guess that these children are Lumen Earl Cisney and Odessa Cisney or let me know who they are. Submitted by Jackie Hensley

Saloon in Belden in 1899??
This is a photo of a saloon I believe was in Belden, Nebraska. The picture was in my grandmother's photo album. On the back was written "Matt Schmitt." Mathias Schmitt was my grandmother's brother-in-law. According to a family history book of the Schmitt family, Mathias Schmitt married Augusta Honke (my grandmother's sister) in 1898 and lived in Belden for a year in 1899 and was a saloon keeper there. The family later moved to Randolph, Nebraska and became life-long citizens of that town, having raised their children there. There are still grandchildren and other family members living in Randolph. Any help you can give me in confirming that this photo was taken in Belden would be greatly appreciated. And if anyone could identify the men in front of the building it would be a wonderful addition to the photo's history. Also note the men standing behind the building. I wonder what the chances are that the building is still standing?
