Charles Elfer Home

Charles Elfer Home

The St. Rose home of Charles Elfer was photographed in 1910 when John Elfer Sr. was five years old. Joan Elfer Acosta is unable to identify all those in the photo. From the left she believes are Octave, Phillippe. John is the five-year-old boy in front of his parents, Alice and Charles Elfer. She believes Eugene and Alice are in the photo. The man who owned the Steckler feed company is at the right. The house they stand in front of still stands in St. Rose today.
