    Erhardt-Schunke Picnic 
    • Those photographed during the get-togther were:

      Daniel and Julia Erhardt and children:
      Juliette
      Leona
      Lily
      Nelda

      Merle Erhardt and son:
      Ken

      Bill and Maud Erhardt and children:
      Leno
      Nelda

      Mollie Vetter

      Emma Mead

      It was about this time that Nelda Erhart (later Griffiths) was 6 years old, and she kept calling Aunt Mollie, "Aunt Lollie" incorrectly probably mixing it up with Aunt Lily's name (the more familiar name). Everyone would laugh each time, and no one told her why until the weekend was over. At that point Aunt Mollie (Vetter) gave little Nellie a hug and said, "You can call me Molly, Lolly or Baggy!" It took Nellie a couple years before she figured out "Baggy" was thrown in to be funny!

    Physical Description Awkward relationship  [7
    • There were some problems between Mollie and some of the Erhardt family members, but they were not explained to the Erhardt children. As with difficulties the matters were hush-hush. Lily Quarnburg later told Nelda Griffiths: "Well, she's a bit different from the others and often has a different outlook on life." The "difficulty" may have come from Lily Erhardt's relationship with a married man, and later her husband.
