This is a photo from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
A little girl with a great big bow in her hair. She is a real cutie!
This is the back of the photo. I think it says:
Edwinea Eckfeld Born May 18 1907 Age 6 years ( The photo must have been taken in 1913)
Daughter of Della Lehman, a cousin Grandmother Strehlow’s sisters daughter.
There is a mark on the front of the photograph, I am unable to read it.
HHW something..I wonder if the photographer signed his photos in pencil.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
On a side note..I featured Photo Number 134 of Eugenia Strehlow Meilicke and her family..do you suppose her Mother was Grandmother Strehlow? Just a thought, I did get the photos at the same antique shop??
Update from Iggy:
Edwinea Eckfeld was born on May 18 1907 in Columbia Township, Tuscola County, Michigan and died on 28 Feb 1996 in Port Huron, St. Clair County, Michigan. She was married to Floyd Thomas King (28 Jan 1908-16 Jul 1973).
She attended the Central State Teachers College (Class of 1929) and published "A study of the critical ideas of Sir Thomas Elyot" in 1932.
"In the regular 8th grade examination, Edwinea Eckfeld of Unionville received the highest standing of the 481 students who took the examination. Her standing was 96.6 per cent. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Eckfeld and a pupil of Miss Edna Stroud."
More from Iggy:
On Oct. 22, 1903, Edwin W. Eckfield (b. 1881 in Michigan) married Adella Lehman (b. 1880 in Wisconsin). The Bride's Parent's Names wer Henry and Mina Lehman (both b. 1838 in Germany) and they were living in Liberty Grove, Door, Wisconsin.
Here is the connection with Photo 134.
Adela Lehman's mother was "Mina Buchold" on a wedding record and "Minnie A Bucholz" in the census records (b. Sep 1837 in Germany)
Eugenia Stehlow's mother was "Liebegott Maria Buchholz" (b. Sep. 5, 1836 in Germany d. Oct. 3, 1901)
I would assume they were sisters.
