This is a photo from blog reader Tulla.
Here is the back of the photo. The photo was most likely taken in 1901.
I did find them in the 1910 Census. The parents of these boys were Ariston and Mary Lord who were both born in Maine. In 1910 Ariston was a foreman of a lumber company. I also found him in the 1880 census in Muskegon Michigan working in a mill.
The last time I can find the boys is the 1920 census, they are still living with their parents at 903 Beltrami Avenue in Bemidji Minnesota. Elbridge is listed as a railway laborer. His name is spelled Albridge in some records and Elbridge in others. His brother may be Harey or Harry.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Iggy:
Elbridge Kimball Lord (b. 26-Jan-1897 d. 23-Aug-1963 in Minnesota at the age of 66) and is buried in Fort Snelling National Cemetery, Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota. He was a Private in the US Army in WWI.
I am much less certain about his brother, Harry Ariston Lord, I think he was (b. 26-Sep-1899 d. Mar-1973 in Florida at the age of 73)
Another Update from Iggy:
Elbridge married an Ella B. Lord (b. February 2, 1897 d. June 1, 1987 at age 90 years in Minneapolis, Hennepin County).
"Hovey A." married Edith Lord (b. 22 Jan 1899 d. Mar 1979 in Florida), "Hovey and Edith" are in the 1930 US census twice. They were counted in Minnesota and in Washington DC.
