This is the town in Germany where the Pfifferling family was originally from. In my mother's story she says that it is near the Fulda River. My mother's great-great-grandfather Sander, great-grandfather Joseph (who was one of 13 children and that the building, Brunnenstraße 24, is still known as “the 13-children house”), and grandfather Sander Pfifferling were all born there. Also, Opa Karl's oldest brother, Adolph was born in Datterode. The family then moved to Wanfried, and then again to Halle/Saale. The woman in the center at the bottom of this picture is Opa Karl's cousin Hilde Frank, who was born in Datterode and lived in Evanston, Illinois. Hilde's father, Albert Pfifferling, and Opa Karl were first cousins.This picture was taken when Hilde visited Datterode in 1969. The other two women are Hilde's sister Ilse Pfifferling, who emigrated to Argentina, and Christine Ronshausen, who lived in Datterode. Thomas Beck of Datterode identified them for me.
