Annie Rosendale Turns 136
Antje van Rosendal, or in the American tongue Annie Rosendale, was born 136 years ago today, on 13 February 1876. She was born in the tiny town of Dispatch, Kansas to Beert Berends van Rosendal and Maartje Hessels de Jong. I recently was able to scan this photo of her when she was probably 12. It's with her mother and older sister Maggie. Just a couple years later Annie would be married to Marinus Wichers.
