Photograph of Catherine (Wund) Golding of New York, New York; photo by a Saint Louis Studio.

Photograph of a woman identified on the reverse as Catherine (Wund) Golding, wife of Steven Golding, with more information on her family.  Taken by a studio in Saint Louis, Missouri.

On the reverse: "Catherine Wund married Steven Golding - they had 3 boys & 3 girls, lost twins. We called her Aunt Kate; had brothers interested in politics - Eldest brother Jake, Charlie 2nd brother. Jake had daughter."

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions gratefully received:

About 1874, Catarina Wund (1851-1924), "Catherine", married Christopher Stephen Golding (1844-1923). According to the photograph, Catherine had 3 sons and 3 daughters and lost twins.  It may be that she lost one child each from two sets of twins, rather than losing both children from one set, but perhaps a reader has more insight.

And, hopefully, a reader will have an idea of how the photograph happened to be taken in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Children I found: 9 listed, so either a mistake in the photograph or in my research
  • Stephen Wund Golding (b. 18 May 1874)
  • Thomas W. Golding (1875-1941)
  • Charles William Golding (1875-1895)
  • Stephen Golding (23 Jan 1877)
  • Catherine W. Golding (1877-1924)
  • Florence Louise Golding (1879-1933)
  • Ethel Golding (1881-1904)
  • Edwin S. Golding (1883-1926)
  • Mabel Elaine Golding (1890-).

Although Catherine had several other siblings as well, the two mentioned on the reverse of the photograph were:
  • Jacob C. Wund (1846-1927)
  • Charles (1853-unk)

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

In the 1900 Census, the family was living at West 22nd Street in Manhattan, New York.
