What

Helen (Kirmse) Hacker says that her father, Louis Kirmse, did not accompany his brother, Joseph Kirmse, on the trip to Oklahoma to purchase land.  She says that Louis Kirmse had to stay home on the farm in Missouri to take care of the chores while Joseph came to Oklahoma and purchased the quarter of land that they divided into two 80 acre properties.

There are several elements of the picture – a house with two women in front, a Case car with two men, two teams of horses/mules with drivers and farm buildings in the foreground.

On the left side of the picture, are a girl and a woman:

From the note on the back of the photograph and a note that Ella (Kirmse) Krueger provided on the August Kahnert family photo:

Ella (Kirmse) Krueger provided this note to Donna (Kirmse) Martin. I remember Ella noting that Grandma Anna Kahnert was the source of her first middle name, Anna.

the woman is Anna Kahnert the mother of August Kahnert.  The girl is probably the daughter of Anna Kahnert.

On the right side of the picture are two teams of horses/mules:

Helen (Kirmse) Hacker questions whether Louis Kirmse accompanied his brother, Joseph Kirmse on this trip to view the harvest of their Oklahoma property.  To me the facial features are close to that of Louis Kirmse.
