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.

Of which whom all heathens' hope

Receive my Hoshianna
With victorious palm branches
As many as I am able
I want to shout you honor
And with full faith which you deserve
Reward me with eternal gain
