On Valentine's Day 1896, Louisa (Heuszel) Werther gave birth to her 11th child, a son. She and her husband, Emil Werther, named their son Walter Valentine Werther. [Emil's sister, Guntherine (Werther) Peters, was my great, great grandmother.]
Three photos from his life:

The "i" in Valentine appears to be dotted with a heart!
|Photo labeled "Children of Frederick August Emil and Louise Matilda (Heuszel) Werther,|
Date Unknown" from files of Beulah (Peters) Brewer. Unfortunately, the siblings are not labeled.
