This is the photograph of Elizabeth Frerichs and her friend Christie Mesigaclis made in the 1900s. Images that portray two friends dressed up and sitting for a photograph that would become a keepsake of their friendship are more rare than traditional individual and family photos because they show the depth of amicable devotion. Born in 1882, Elizabeth was a daughter of Herman Frerichs and Rena Bohlken, children of the emigrant families that settled in Otoe County Nebraska. In 1913 Elizabeth married William Roscoe Morris. The Morrises were the parents of Judith Rowe.For interviews and oral histories of this and other items please visit the History Harvest YouTube Channel.
