Charlie Eickhoff's grandfather Edward Eickhoff was a son of Arnold Eickhoff, at one time a representative from Knox and Cedar Counties to Nebraska legislature. Born in 1866 and 1870 in Wisconsin, Edward Eickhoff and Elizabeth Bruns eventually settled in the village of Crofton in Knox County, Nebraska. Edward died in December 1929 and Elizabeth survived him by 30 years. The photograph was probably taken on May 12, 1892, the day of Edward and Elizabeth's wedding.
