The Schibal family came here from Bohemia in 1866 to escape the Austrio-Prussian war. Annie and Mary Schibal (ages 12 and 15 in the picture below) had a lot of adjustments to make in their new home in this foreign land.
By the time Mary Schibal married Otto Jappel in 1880, the spelling of the Schibal name had been largely changed to Sibal.
We don't know for sure who the baby is in this mid 19th century wicker pram. It could be Frank, born in 1883, or Emil, born in 1870.
