Looking Back

The photo, submitted by Bill Mueller of Roanoke Rapids, originally ran on March 18, 2014. It shows his great-grandmother, Louisa Uhl Mueller, who was born on April 9, 1855, in New York City, six years before the start of the Civil War. She died in September 1953 at the age of 98. When Bill was a child, his family used to visit her on Sunday afternoon and share coffee, cake and stories around a formal dining table. The Looking Back featured photo will run in every Thursday/Friday edition of The Herald.
