Do I blame the photographer or the couples? This couple, too, looks like they are lined up in front of a firing squad. Maybe one photo too many that day?
The couple here are identified as Carl Symmank and Lena Walters. This turned out to be slightly in error, unless Carl was a nickname. The groom was, in fact, Charlie Friedrich Symmank, born February 5, 1907, in Lincoln, Texas, to August and Augusta (Werner) Symmank. He died on January 6, 1968. (All of this information from his death certificate.)
Lena Frieda Walters Symmank's parents could not be identified. She was born on March 22, 1907, and died on December 26, 1998.
Both are buried in the Ebenezer Cemetery in Manheim, Texas.
Carl and Lena had at least 3 children, listed on the 1940 census as Earl, age 10, Ruby, age 6, and Eddie, age 1.
