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 againSmile

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.)



July 11, 2011 Update: Iggy has located a relative in Forman, ND and I will send them a copy of this blog to make sure they are related and want the old photo:)


July 15 Update:
I heard from the relatives in Forman, ND that the family researcher that lives in Bismarck, ND would appreciate this photo of his relative..so I am sending it off in the mail tomorrow:)

  3. I bet Kenneth was not the last in his family to wear that gown. Wouldn't it be great if it was still in the family.

  6. What a sweet little face. Iggy - you're the best!

    BTW - I tried leaving comments on your other blog but kept getting kicked out saying "service not available" weird. Dragon flys are good luck so I think Far Guy is well blessed now.

  7. Good morning. I have been able to find additional info, but not enough yet to return the photo to someone. I found a South Dakota Marriage certificate for Kenneth Roy Litchfield and a Montana Death Certificate info.

    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.)
    I was unable to find any additional information as to whether they had children, as all the family trees are listed as private. I may sleuth a bit more later, as I am heading out for the day. ~Abra
