Photo Number 486

Mrs Annie from Perham Dl Antiques copy This is another Cabinet Card from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
The photographer is N. Jahn, he was in Perham Minnesota in 1902.  I loved the backdrop in this photo..just walking down a country lane and stopped near a chair.  My goodness she is a thin lady.

Miss Annie Semverling? Semnerling? Semvirling? Perham Minnesota

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from crex:
There is an Anna Semmerling who died 29 April 1912 in Perham, Otter Tail, Minnesota, but she was born as late as 1884.


Update from Iggy:
In the 1900 and 1910 US Census she is listed as Anna and then Annie Semerling (single "m"). She appears to be the only offspring of Franz/Frank and Franiska/Francis nee Potrefki Semerling, who moved to the US from Poland/Germany. It appears that Anna never married and had no offspring. The census/death records vary on her birthdate - some say 1882, and some say 1884.

Anna's mother died on 29 Sep 1918. If Anna had any neices or nephews - they will be hard to find given the uncertain spelling.

  1. I'm betting on Senmerling, but not by a big margin.

  2. This woman doesn't look well. There is an Anna Semmerling who dies 29 April 1912 in Perham, Otter Tail, Minnesota, but she was born as late as 1884.
