Mystery Photo... Sleepy Eye, Minnesota

Meyer-Windhorn-Grundmeyer familes of Sleepy Eye, Minnesota

This lost photo was recently rescued from an antique shop... and on the back is written

"The Groom Otto Meyer (seated)  
Al Windhorn  
William Grundmeyer"

I did a brief search and it appears that Otto Meyer lived in the Sleepy Eye area, and died in 1927... his wife was Alvina Grundmeyer... I assume that the William Grundmeyer in this photo is a relative of the brides... not sure how/if Windhorn connects.

It's a very nice cabinet card photo... and it would be wonderful to reunite it with a family member who would appreciate adding it to their genealogy archive!

[** Update 5/6/14- Photo was returned to a Meyer descendant! Thanks to Barb for helping in the quest]
