This photo is labeled Irwin and Ralph Meyer. Irwin and Ralph were two of Frank Richard Meyer and Clementine Flach's children.
I found a birth certificate for Ralph (Alfred Leon) Meyer with a birth date of May 7, 1888. The record lists parents as Frank Meyer and Clementine (first name only). The Saint Louis death records give this information: Ralph Meyer Residence: 2929 Henrietta. Ralph was buried in Holy Ghost Cemetery, but he was re-interred at St Marcus, a few days after Arthur Bain Meyer died. (1912) This is confirmed by the St Marcus Cemetery record which states that his body was removed from Holy Ghost Cemetery and re-interred at Saint Marcus a few days after Authur Bain was buried in 1912.
Irwin's death certificate lists his birth date as May 7, 1888, but I have not found a birth certificate for him.
If they were twins, you would think that both births would have been recorded. Also, if they were twins, I doubt this is Ralph in the photo. More likely, this is Clementine (1890) or Elmer (1892).
