| Scripture Memory Cards Circa 1915-1920
These cards are from a collection of Scripture memory cards given
to Clara Kusler Mayer in her Sunday school class at the Gnadenfeld
Congregational Church near Kulm, south-central North Dakota.
Clara, the daughter of Germans from Russia immigrants, was born
in 1902 in Parkston, South Dakota. Her parents came from the villages
near present-day Odessa, Ukraine: Johann Kusler from Worms, Beresan
District, and Magdalena Grosz from Kulm, Bessarabia.
In March 1921, Clara Kusler married John Mayer in a double wedding
ceremony along with Clara's brother, Edward Christian Kusler, who
married John's sister, Carolina (Carrie) Mayer. Clara died in 1986
in Kulm, North Dakota.
This collection of memory cards featuring color lithography was
originally published in New York. They were donated by Clara's sister,
Adeline Kusler McCloy, to the Germans from Russia Heritage Collection
in January 2002.
