Note from Lorraine Hampel & her grandson Ryan, about this picture (Aug., 2005):
"Grandma Pirson was born in France.  Her birth name was Eva Knoche & her fathers name was Johann Philip.  The road that St. Peter's church in Tonawanda is named after him, and he donated the land for the church.  Interestingly Grandma Pirson's father-in-law donated the money to build the church."
