Photo Number 826

I purchased this photo at a flea market in Wadena Minnesota.
It is in a frame.

I took a photograph.
I decided not to take this old photograph out of the frame.  I think it might be a cabinet card, but I cannot be sure while it is in the frame. The paper on the back is very fragile.

Ole Engebritson
and
Carrie Engebritson
(Caren)
parents of Albert Engebritson
This photograph was professionally framed by Decker’s Art Store in Duluth Minnesota.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Iggy:
Ole Engebritson
Medo Township, Blue Earth, Minnesota 
Birth Date: Feb 1835 
Birthplace: Norway 
Spouse: Karie Engebritson 
Spouse's Birthplace: Norway 
Father's Birthplace: Norway 
Mother's Birthplace: Norway 
Marital Status: Married 
Years Married: 45 
Estimated Marriage Year: 1855

In the 1875 Minnesota Census, he appears to be living in the same place with son Albert (and a real crowd of others). Albert appears to have been born in 1862 in Iowa.

Albert married Nettie L. Rusdall in 10 Jul 1891. He died on 17 Dec 1917 in Duluth,​ St. Louis,​ Minnesota.

Albert and Nettie's children--

Clark Otis Engebritson (b. May 1892 d. 1919 Pope, MN)
Lewis/Louis Theron Engebritson (b. 03 Nov 1893 - living in Proctor, St. Louis, Minnesota in 1930)
Andrew Anthony Engebritson (b. 01 Nov 1895 d. 09 Feb 1922 in Pope, Minnesota)
Esther Engebritson (b. Jun 1899-
Ruth Engebritson (b. abt 1908- 



From Anonymous:
In 1857, Ole Ingebrigtsen (born 1835, probably February 2nd, so 22 at the time), together with wife Kari Brynildsdtr (25) and daugther Inger (3), living at the farm Gjære (Gjerde?) at Voss in the western Norwegian mountains, emigrated to America. A possible match?

The Norwegian digital archives has a list of the following Norwegians in Medo, Blue Earth, Minnesota in 1880:
Ole Ingebritson m 45
Kary Ingebritson f 49
Martin E Ingebritson m 20
Albert Ingebritson m 18
Bessie Ingebritson f 16 

(Clearly the same as Intense Guy found.)

The age difference between Ole and Kary may match the emigrants from Voss, another indication they are the right couple. However, Inger has dissappeared.

    Albert married Nettie L. Rusdall in 10 Jul 1891. He died on 17 Dec 1917 in Duluth,​ St. Louis,​ Minnesota.

    They had at least three sons and a daughter according to the 1900 US Census -- https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M99B-Q9P

  3. They look like a kindly couple. I would have difficulty in resisting taking it out of the frame - I once found several other older photos in the back of a frame, so am always tempted!

  6. In the above post, "Ingrid" should be "Inger".
