Ferdinand Schuster was born in Fürstenthal, Bukovina, in 1865.  The date of the picture is unknown, but was taken prior to 1904, when he arrived at Ellis Island.  The practice was to attach a picture of the person's face to a picture of the uniform, so only the head is actually Ferdinand.


A copy of a copy, the writing is difficult to read.   “Freiherr” or “Baron” is a title of nobility; this word is then followed by the personal name of the individual for whom this regiment is named, which unfortunately, is illegible.
