First Communion, 1888
A certificate for a First Communion from 1888. Text is in German, and the lithograph is by Benziger. I could not read all of the writing at the bottom of the certificate, but it was signed by Fr. J. Heidegger, Pastor, who is likely Rev. James J. Heidegger -- he was a pastor at Fort Jennings and St. Mary, Sandusky. You can see a brief biography of him HERE.
