The Dietzens

A photograph of Margaret Louise Dietzen (center, back row) and her family, 1933. Two years after this photograph was taken, Margaret married Chester T. Raymo.

Margaret's parents were Mary Katherine Dowling (1889-1961) and Leonard Phillip Dietzen (1886-1935). Mary was of Irish ancestry, and Leonard was the son of German immigrant parents.

Mary and Leonard Dietzen had nine children, including eight daughters, of which Margaret was the eldest, and lived across the street from the Raymo family on East Ninth Street in Chattanooga.
