Walter Merker, of Downers Grove (DuPage Co.) IL in about 1940s

I have an original photograph taken in about the 1940s of “Walter Merker”, which I would like to get back to family members. Photo was taken by the Lupien Studio in Downers Grove, IL, which is in DuPage Co. In the photo, Walter looks to be in about his 40s.

I found two possibilities for this Walter Merker 1) Walter H. Merker, born 15 Dec 1896, and died 11 Apr 1989, with last SS payment going to Downers Grove, IL; and 2) Walter Merker, born 18 May 1889, died June 1974. I do not know which Walter is in the photo I have, but I would be happy to scan it if you have a Walter.

Email me at if you are related to the Merker families of DuPage Co., IL
