Einar has gone home!
Researcher Abra worked tirelessly to return this photo to family. He appeared on March 10, 2010 almost two years ago. With just one name Einar and the Ishpeming Michigan location.
I may have found Einar. I compared an adult photo to this one, and the smile, hair color, and eyes all appear the same. I sent a message to the tree owner and keeping my fingers crossed that Einar will be no longer forgotten. He's been one of my soft spots over the years! ;-) Abra
I sent this to another person that has Einar Werner in his private family tree. Perhaps he is a grandson of Einar. (I really hope this is the right Einar, and I believe it is). I hope someone wants him home! ~Abra
A comment from Sharon:
Hello, I was contacted by Abra regarding your Photo of Einar.
His name is Einar Axel WARNER(later WERNER)he was born July of 1893 in Ishpeming, Marquette Co, Michigan.
His Parents actually met on the ship coming from Bersbo, Värna, Östergotland, Sweden in 1888. His father was Stephen "Emil" VARNER (WERNER)b.1867 in Bersbo, Värna, Östergotland, Sweden and his mother was Amanda Christina HOLMGREN b. 17 July 1867 in Bersbo, Värna, Östergotland, Sweden.
On the ships roster "Emil" was destined for Ishpeming (line92) and Amanda was bound for New York....he must have changed her mind, because they both came to Ishpeming and were married in 1889. Amanda is the sister of my 3rd great grandfather, Anders Frederick (A.F.) HOLMGREN who married Johanna HAGLOF. Anders was killed in a mine in Ishpeming in 1903. at the age of 55.
Einar has arrived! I will scan him in and add his image to my ancestry .com tree.
Thank you again, For the great service you are doing. Sharon
She also wrote that if a family member that is more closely related show ups..she will mail them the photo.
I have used that photo of Einar in several headers at the top of this blog. Perhaps that was always a reminder to Abra to keep looking.
Thanks Abra..and Congratulation on finding Einar a home!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Sharon sent us a photo of Einar as an adult! Thanks Sharon!
