Postcard Rose Gast DL Antiques back
We have some more clues Azo Postcard with triangles pointing up means 1904 to 1918.  Wahpeton N.D. is stamped on the edge of the postcard.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Iggy:
Well, sure enough, the rather unique name of Elfreda Hingot appears in the 1930 US census. Born in 1901 and living in Wahpeton,​ Richland county,​ North Dakota.

Nicely (and neatly) we find Rose Gast (a not so unique name) in the 1910 US census. Born in 1901, and living in Summit, Richland county, North Dakota.

Rose is the daughter of Fred and Herth Gast and she had at least 7 siblings. In the 1920 US census she is listed as Rosa (and her parents are C Fred and Hatta) and she has another sibling born since 1910.



Rose Martha Christine Gast b: 2/17/1901 d: 5/2/2000 married Alfred C. Koppelman b: 9/6/1898 d: 12/7/1983.

She had four children.



Update From email on April 7, 2012


I heard from a family member that yes this is Rose,  her son thinks she was about 14 years old at the time this photo was taken, and they also think it was a Confirmation photo.    So that dates the year of the photo right around 1915. 
I am waiting to hear if they would like the photo mailed out.

  5. I'm glad about the typo with Elfreida name, I would have never found her otherwise. In 1910 she's listed as Frieda Hingst (and living in the same town as Rose), and in 1920 she is listed as Alfrieda Hingst - The search engine tripped over both misspellings of her name. I only found her using her mother's name, Ida. :)
