Maria Niemann Alien Registration

One of John's cousins just sent me the Alien Registration Card of his great-grandmother, Maria Klotz Niemann, that she received from another cousin. This is the only picture of her that I have and it is the first record I've seen where her name is recorded as Maria rather than Mary. Loose inside the card was a picture of a younger man which is in the third scan. I am guessing that it is her son, Adolph. It lists her address as 113 Hier Ave, Syracuse, NY so she would have been living with her daughter and son-in-law, Anna & August Korthas.
