Photos on this page provided by Phyllis Karsten who writes about her Mother's Uncle Paul and Aunt Lizzie;
I have come across several spellings of Eliese, I am going by the spelling on the note-page listing as being the closest source.
They had six children. Mother called these her "double cousins"--Uncle Paul and Mother's Papa were brothers, and Aunt Lizzie and Mother's Mamma were sisters.

In 1899 the family attended the 50th wedding anniversary celebration for Paul Twelker's parents. These closeups of the children were taken from that photo.
