This is a photo from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
JH Hunter of Forman N Dak (North Dakota) was the photographer.
This is the name scrawled on the back, Kenneth Ritchfield or Litchfield or Pitchfield. I think this photo may have been taken right around 1900-1910.
The child’s gown is beautiful. His hair seems to be parted off to the side which would indicate his is a boy.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again
Update from Iggy:
The United States Census, 1910 shows Kenneth R Litchfield, born in 1903, living in Dunbar, Sargent, North Dakota; son of Roland R and Millie M Litchfield.
Update from Abra:
Kenneth Litchfield, age 31, a resident of Gwinner, Sargent County, ND married Pearl White, age 25, a resident of Forman, Sargent County, ND. The marriage was solemnized in Britton, Marshall County, South Dakota by M.J. Steven, County Judge, on 1-24-1935.
The Montana death record for Kenneth states he was 61 when he died on January 20 1965 in Cascade County, Montana, which was also his county of residence. He is listed as widowed. (Additional information from a family tree states that his wife, Pearl, passed away in 1958.)
