Russell Frantz is pictured on Page 3, where the names of the Charter Members are listed.
 There are several Frantz's on the list--probably Emanuel Frantz (Levi's father), Levi (Russell's father) and his brothers Elmer and John, as well as Russell and another E. Frantz -- could that have been Effie? 
It appears there are women listed--note "Miss Freeland" (probably Cardella Rhen Freeland) pictured on Page 20.

The church and schoolhouse where Evelyn Frantz attended is on Page 5

Elmer Frantz, John Frantz, and John Brunner are pictured on Page 7

Russell Frantz's home at 538 Main St is mentioned on Page 8 as the 1st house to be built in Bressler. This is where Effie and Levi Frantz lived with their children. Russell bought the house after he married Edith Bretz.
