    Bert Erskine Rudolph was born in 1890. His father John Mason Rudolph died in 1900. So the photo was taken in the 1890s. Bert looks to be about five years old in the photo, so the photo could have been taken around 1895.
    Elizabeth Jane Thorpe recalls that they had a summer beach cottage on the shore at Asbury Park in the New Jersey Pine Barrons. This photo might be it.

    You can hover your mouse over the identified people in this photo to see some quick information about them including their name, then click to go to their individual page if you'd like to see more about them. Although only ten people in this 1903 photo have been identified, the photo ties together several threads of the Rudolph family. Additions and corrections to the story below are very welcomed!

    Ernest John Rudolph, who's 21st birthday is being celebrated, does not look very happy. His father John Mason Rudolph had passed away less than three years before. Ernest had been forced to leave Swarthmore College where he had been attending. The family wants Ernest to marry one of the young women in the photo, but Ernest does not wish too. Two and half years later he marries Julia Ann Taylor, whose family from Missouri is not welcome in the East because they had fought vigorously against the Union, never accepting the Missouri Compromise. Perhaps a little too central to the group in the photo is Ernest's younger brother Bert, the doted-upon son. Bert is directly in front of Ernest's mom and right next to their grandmother, Julia Klein Hornberger.

    Several of Ernest's aunts, uncles and cousins are present. His father's older brother Samuel Fogg Rudolph is there with his wife Mary Hansell. His first cousin Thomas Rudolph, Samuel's son, is there with his wife Annie Hearst. His mother's sister Mamie Erskine is there with her husband Frank Vache.

    There are several family heirlooms in the photo. The floral picture on the wall was painted by Emma Louise Erskine who was an artist. A search for this painting is underway. Emma Louise Erskine and her sister Mary Erskine purchased a pair of matching clocks. Emma's clock can be seen in the photo. The family china can be seen on the table. If you zoom in on the plates, you can see that there are twelve plates in a stack on the table, and there are still twelve plates today 110 years later. Finally, the Rudolph family "R" glasses can also be seen on the table. The clock, plates and glasses are currently held by Robert Charles Rudolph.

    There were four successive generations of Rudolphs who were consecutive superintendents or caretakers of the Friends' Southwestern Burial Ground at 236 Powell Lane, Upper Darby, PA. The second and third of those generations are in this photo.

    1) The first generation was Thomas Rudolph (1824 - 1887), who became caretaker in 1872 and held the position until his death in 1887. His wife was Sarah Ann Fogg.
    2) The second generation was Samuel Fogg Rudolph (1848 - 1933), who became caretaker upon his father's death in 1887. He is the tall balding man standing in front of the door frame with his eyes closed. Samuel probably held the position of caretaker when this photo was taken in 1903. His wife Mary S. Hansell is seated at the table.
    3) The third generation to serve as caretaker was Thomas Rudolph (1875 - 1941). Thomas was Ernest John's first cousin. Thomas is in the photo standing just in front of and to the left of his father Samuel. His wife Anna Hearst or Annie is standing to the right of Emma Louise Erskine with her eyes closed. Upon her husband Thomas' death in 1941, Annie served as caretaker for a few years until her son, who had been born while they lived in the caretaker's house at 236 Powell Lane five years before this photo was taken, took over care of the cemetery from her.
    4) The fourth Rudolph to serve as consecutive caretaker was Samuel Fogg Rudolph (1898 - 1961). He was married to Ruth Martin Murray, whose brother Jim Murray took over as caretaker upon Samuel's death.

    All four of these consecutive Rudolph caretakers, and their four wives including Annie who held the position for a while, are buried in the Friend's Southwestern Burial Ground. You can click to their individual webpages to see photos of their headstones and locations.

    RUDOLPH NAMED MAYOR BY HARBOR COUNCIL


    Acting Mayor Appointed in Surprise Move; Will Be Candidate in Fall


    JOHN GASH APPOINTED TO SEAT IN COUNCIL


    Stone Harbor - In a surprise move, Bert E. Rudolph, acting Mayor of Stone Harbor since the death of Mayor H. Irvin Gerhart in February, was elected Mayor of this resort Friday evening at an otherwise routine meeting of Council.

    Mr. Rudolph took over the executive duties of the Borough at the March meeting, by reason of his office as President of Council.

    Coming as a surprise to the spectators, who had felt Mr. Rudolph would continue as acting Mayor until the fall election, Councilman James E. McCaughey arose and offered the motion to make Mr. Rudolph Mayor. Councilman John G. Bucher promptly seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous. Borough Solicitor Lewis T. Stevens immediately administered oath of office.


    Will Run in Fall For Unexpired Term

    Mr. Rudolph thanked members of Council, tendered his resignation as a Councilman, and announced his candidacy for the mayoralty in the fall election for the remaining year in the late Mr. Gerhert's term. He will serve as Mayor, under the present appointment, until December 31.

    TOO LATE


    Mother of Mayor Doesn't See Him Seated


    Stone Harbor. - The No. 1 Spectator at the monthly sessions of the Borough Council missed the biggest moment of them all last Friday night.

    Mrs. Johnson, mother of Mayor Bert E. Rudolph, has religiously attended Council meetings for years, winter and summer. The only time she was not in her familiar seat near Council desk was when she was too ill to go out

    Last Friday evening, Mr. Rudolph, in a surprise move, was elected mayor and sworn into office. Mrs. Johnson arrived just too late. She had been across the street attending a service at the Lutheran church.

    STONE HARBOR ELECTS MAYOR, 3 COUNCILMEN


    Republican Candidates Have No Opposition; Voting Proves Lighter Than County Average


    ...Mayor Bert E. Rudolph, unopposed on the Republican Ticket, was elected to fill the unexpired term of the late Mayor H. Irvin Gerhart at Stone Harbor. He will seek election to a full term next fall


    Stone Harbor - A Mayor and three Councilmen, already in office, were re-elected Tuesday in this resort where voters think the Republicans are doing so fine a job they don't even nominate Democratic opponents.

    A smaller percentage of voters actually turned out at the polls here than for the county as a whole. Nearly three-quarters of the county's registered voters marked ballots, but scarcely more than half of Stone Harbor's eligible voters indicated there choice.

    Bert E. Rudolph, member of Council for eight years, prior to succeeding Mayor H. Irvin Gerhart upon his death early this year, was elected to fill the unexpired term of the late executive. That means he must run again for a full term next year.

    Councilmen John R. Biggs and John F. Gash were elected to full terms. Gash was recently appointed to fill the vacancy in Council caused by Rudolph's elevation to mayoralty.

    Henry P. Miller, appointed several months ago to succeed the late Councilman Thomas F. Gowen, was elected to complete the unexpired term.

    Borough Recorder John W. Nace was elected justice of the peace without opposition.

    The five candidates received the following vote: Rudolph, 217; Biggs, 205; Gash, 201; Miller, 194 and Nace 198.
