Photo Number 234
I was a bit puzzled about the seemingly huge belt. My Dad said "Children often wore big belts it was easier to tie them in place that way." Have you ever heard anything about the use of belts or seen photos of them before?
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Iggy:
I strongly suspect this is Erven L Elliason (11 Jan 1911 - 24 Aug 1971)
Buried in Hillcrest Cemetery, Donaldson, Kittson County, Minnesota - he attended the University of Minnesota in 1930-1931.
Find A Grave Memorial# 54988923
This is what Find A Grave says about his father:
Eldor Elliason's true name was Hagamand Melby Edvardson to start with, with the surname changed to Elliason as was his father's. He was called 'Eldor' because he was the eldest son. Eldor married Gustave 'Gusty' before 1909. His mother, Johanna Nickoline Kristine married Edvard Elliason on 03 July 1876 in Bindal. They had 4 sons in Norway, Eldor (Hagamand), Anton, Marshall(Marcellius), and Johannes; and a daughter Emelia after emigrating to the USA in late 1891 or early 1892 to Kittson County, MN.
