Jill052 wrote on Ancestry "Back says, "Tegner Ranch, Jaqua Kansas.  This was in a box with family photos of Remley's and Browning families. My Great Aunt Rettie Browning, married a Tegner. I think this was his father's farm because from the census records, Rettie and her husband, Harry, never lived in Jauqa, KS or Cheyenne Co. Charles Tegner and his children, Harry and Clara, did in the 1900 with neighbors of the Remley's and Brownings. I have a township map showing the plots of land of neighbors. Will try to post it also."
