Photo Number 492

Elmers sisters DLThe photographer is L Hikell ..Artist  in  Beresford, So. Dak

Elmers sisters back

Could this say Elmer Westling?? or Elmer sister? I thought it might say Elmers sister..he had three that it could be.. Selma Mary born in 1888 the Mother of all those children plus many more. Emelia Edna born in 1891 or Freda Eileen born in 1893.

I think there is a resemblance in all of these photos..brothers and sisters and one of the sisters children. What do you think?  We probably have too much speculation to go any further with these photos..but perhaps a relative will come by someday and leave a message..you never can tell.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  1. They seem to share the same wide "pudgy" nose. Not knowing any better, I would think this is the mother of the child - this family did live so close to Beresford until they moved to California. My guess would be Selma and her oldest daughter, Blanch(e) (b. 1915). The girl looks about 10-12 years old to me - I wonder when the Dubrall's moved to California?

  2. It is an interesting group of photos. The writing does get to be hard to read with aging process.

  3. Seeing these photos make me want to go back to the almost expressionless faces for some of my pictures. There's a pureness that I like in these particular shots.

  4. It kind of does look like "sister" there but it's so hard to read.
