On the back, this photo is marked Rosy Finck and Fead . The "and Fead" was added later. I think Rosy Finck may be Rosina Finck (born 6 Mar 1885 in SD), the daughter of Conrad Fink (born 25 Jan 1851, Cassel) and Cathrina Preszler (born 28 Oct 1851, Cassel).
Rosina Finck Married Gottlieb Mettler, the son of Georg Mettler and Eva Preszler.
