This week we will look at a few photos from my readers.
This photo is from Laura in California, she found it in a book. She would like it to go back to family if possible.
This is a Real Photo Postcard, an Azo with triangles up in all corners where the stamp goes..so it is from 1904 to 1918.
Benson of Sterling, Nebr was the photographer.
Ralph Merrick Vimter? ( Winter) 2 yrs old
I found a marriage record in 1941 for Ralph Merrick Winter, he married Nelma Elvera Frey in Lancaster County, Nebraska. Is this the little boy with the beautiful curls?
Thanks for stopping by. If this is a relative of yours please contact me through the email on the left in my profile and I will mail the postcard to you:)
Update from Iggy:
I found two census records for Ralph M Winter in Gage County, NE. If this is him, he was born about 1913 to Ralph B and Olive M Winter. he had a brother (1920 census) named James B Winter b. abt 1918.
Nelma E. Winter was born 11-Mar-1913 and died on 03-Jan-1997 at the age of 83 in Beatrice, Gage County, NE.
Merrick Winter b. 10-Jul-1912 d. 01-Mar-1993 at the age of 80. ( apparently he went by his middle name)
He and Nelma had a son named Francis “Frank” M. Winter. He died August 17, 2010. ( apparently he had no children)
Ralph Merrick Winters brother James may be still alive..perhaps his family wants the photo..we will have to wait and see:)
