Hi Jan,
Thank you for writing. My grandmother was Louise Kleber, daughter of Lyda and William.
What was the date of the photo? Grandma was born on Sept.17,1896. Saxonburg was where the family would go to the country. Louis Kleber resided there and was well travel, and musical. The house that the family would go to (according to grandma) was very large with beautiful gardens. She said that there was a ballroom upstairs where they would dance in the summer late into the night. I have just returned from Germany where I visited what I think was the town where the Kleber family origaned from. It was once called Starkenburg and is now named Heppenheim in Hesse just west of Heidelberg.
I look forward to hearing more. Thanks again.
