Tents and Model Ts or A note lean to tent Perham antiques

Summertime tenting long ago.  I am not sure if these cars are Model T’s or Model A’s.  One has one of those lean- to tents that is somehow attached to the vehicle.

I featured a similar photo from the Delaware River in Photo 605.

Iggy wrote:

The table has some real legs (too!) The "patio" looks pretty permanent - and there are sections of the river where folks can cross River Road (what else would they call it?) from their homes and sit on the short bluff on the river - and still be on their own property, such as in Yardley, PA. The Delaware Canal runs on the PA side of the river and the Delaware and Raritan (D&R) Canal runs on the New Jersey side and they both still have water in them.
I am 99% sure this photo shows the PA side - the large culvert half hidden on the far right (and far side of the river) carries a creek under the D&R canal - placing this shot around Washington Crossing and Yardley, PA - a short distance upstream from Trenton, NJ.

I think I must have jinxed something saying that summer was almost over..it is 90 degrees and miserable up here in Minnesota.

Boating gals DL Antiques

This is a snapshot from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.  Looks like the 1940’s or early 1950’s to me.  I can’t believe these gals are standing up in a boat, it must have been beached on the shore.  Where are their life jackets?   One has a stick and the other seems to be holding some kind of reeds or feathers or something.

Summer gathering DL Antiques

My goodness everyone is all dressed up..with hats and some ladies even have gloves.  I wonder what the occasion was?  A Wedding? A Birthday Party?  Looks like the 1930’s to me..the hems of the dresses below the knee and the hats.

Grandmother Matilda J. Hamnes
Oldest child Julia

This was taken before mother was born.  They must have been in this country a short time.  I figure about 1882.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Iggy:
The 1900 US Census lists Martin Hamnes (b. abt 1848 in Norway), his wife Mathilda (b. abt 1852 in Norway) with daughters Helga (b. 1882 in Norway), Tellie Hamnes (b. 1884 in Wisconsin) and son John Hamnes (b. 1886 in Wisconsin) and another daughter named Julia Hass (b 1874 in Norway) all living in Minneapolis, MN.

"Tellie" was Tilda Marie Hamnes. She married Rudolph Gordon on 8 Sep 1906 and they had a daughter Phyllis Mae Gordon (b. 1 May 1907 in Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota) and a son Irving (b. abt 1918).

In the 1930 US census - Rudolph is shown in Montana and "Tellie"\"Tille" is living with her sister Helga - who married Paul Kwait\Krviat on 10 Feb 1906, but he is no longer living with her. The Kwait's had a daughter and a son also, Marjorie (b. abt 1918) and Adrian (b.13 Nov 1906 d. Mar 1978) Also living with them is a nephew Trainor Phillip. I would assume this is Julia Hass' son and Julia remarried.

So the sisters, once (re)married, were Julia Phillip(?), Helga Kwait, and Tilda Gordon.

Hi! Photo 768, Nellie and Warren Giddings, are my great-grandparents. Is it possible to get a copy of the photo? Nellie's face is blurred on the posted photo. Also, who is the person who posted the info re: names, dates, etc.?
I'm trying to find info on Nellie's first husband, Chester Green, who was the boys' birth father, with no luck. I'm on ancestry.com, too, Copper family tree. Thank you, V.

I replied:

Hi Virginia, I am happy to mail you the photo. Please email me your address. Sue ( Abra) did the research on the names on the photo. She has an Ancestry account and some of her info comes from there. We try to post as much info as we can find..so that family may show up! Just like you!! I bought this photo up at a very small antique shop in Solway Minnesota.
I do ask that you share something that I can write in the Full Circle post after you have received the photo. A story about your Great Grandparents or a memory of them.
I am not sure that the original photo is much better than the scanned version..I will have to find that photo again and have a look. Connie

Virginia wrote back:

Thank you so much!  I’ll just ramble a bit, and you copy anything you’d like. I spent a lot of time with Nellie when I was young. I used to go stay at her little house in San Diego on weekends. She took me to the Methodist church down the street and spoiled me rotten. We rode the bus downtown and went shopping; she bought me my first watch when I was about 8. She had a lady cookie jar with Cookie written on it that she kept filled when we all went to visit. We always found Cookie first thing. I have Cookie now on the sideboard in my dining room. She didn’t like my sister and me playing any card games, even Go, Fish, on Sundays. She taught me how to iron my dad’s handkerchiefs; I can still feel the water bottle in my hand and smell the damp cloth as the hot iron hit it and the sizzle. She babysat us when my parents went out until it got too much for her when she was about 80. She always wore a dress with a slip and stockings and black laced leather shoes with heels when she went anywhere, even the store. She never wore pants. She always wore a bib apron when she cooked or cleaned and let me wear one when I helped her. I wish I still had one of them. My mother spent a lot of time with her on the farm in Minnesota and even lived with her for a time when she was a teenager; we both lived with her in California when I was a baby and my dad was in the navy. She lived with us briefly when she got too old to manage alone. After my grandpa died, she declined very quickly and couldn’t live alone any more. Then she had to live in a nursing home; that broke my mom’s heart, but Nellie started to wander up the street when my mom was at work. Nellie didn’t talk about her family much, but she did tell me her favorite brother drowned and she rode in a covered wagon when she was young. She lived on a farm with her parents and then with her 2nd husband, Warren Giddings, so we know she worked hard. My mother liked her grandpa, Warren, and loved staying with them on the farm. He gave a farm to each of his adopted sons, my grandpa and his brother. We don’t know about Nellie’s life with her 1st husband, Chester Green, other than she said he was a gambler and drank. She even cut him out of a picture of the two of them. I think she was ashamed or embarrassed about being a divorced woman back then. I hope people who see your web site will collect family stories while they can, especially those secrets no one talks about.

I wrote back:

Hi Virginia what wonderful recollections of your Grandmother! Thanks for sharing them! I will include them in the Full Circle Post I write after you receive the photo. I am sorry to report that the original is not much better than the scan. It is a small snapshot..I hope you will treasure it anyway..perhaps it is your Grandmothers handwriting on the back! :) Connie

Virginia got the photo and wrote:

Thank you very much! Nellie was my great-grandma, and we have very few photos of her or my grandpa when he was younger so we all appreciate your saving it!

It would appear that these women are in a school room.  The style of the dresses suggests a 1880’s time frame.

I would like to know what the banner says…  Something something Fail…Never say fail??  That might be it.

I am not convinced that this is a 1880’s photo..it may be from around 1900 and taken as a promotional photograph.  I guess the girls birthdates will tell the story…I will guess that they are 20 years old in this photo.

Postcard Cyko 1904 to 1920 Inez Viola Nelson  ML Antiques Erhard back
This is Inez Viola Nelson.
The card says:
Wishing you all a Happy New Year From Mr + Mrs I. Nelson
It was sent to Mr and Mrs J.L. Shirley
Most likely this is the one and the same Julius Shirley that received two Real Photo Postcards from Ida Wee yesterday.

This Real Photo Postcard a Cyko dates from 1904 to 1920. I will guess that it is closer to the 1920’s side of things..because of the style of the dress..earlier baby dresses/gowns were very long.

I enjoyed this old photo, I love the lacy more than likely crocheted dress.  I like that her cute little toes are peeking out from under the dress.

Update from Iggy:
Inez Viola Regan nee Nelson (b. 2 Mar 1917 in Rothsay, MN d. 22 May 2000 in Minneapolis, MN) was the daughter of Iver and Ida Nelson. They lived in Trondhjem, Otter Tail, Minnesota during 1930s-1940s.

Inez married Eugene Patrick Regan (b. 30 March 1922 d. 6 February 2010) They had a number of children.

One of these gals is Ada  Ida Wee.

It says: Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  From Ada  Ida Wee.
It is addresses to Mrs. Annie J. Shirley (?) Rothsay Minn.
Here is another Postcard same gals…a few years older.

It is addressed to Mr and Mrs Julius Shirley.

The girls look so sad.  Do you suppose those black bits of fabric on the front of their blouses is some type of mourning cloth??

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Iggy:

I am pretty sure that this is Ida Jorgine Wee, born 29 Dec 1889 in Lake Hanska, Brown, Minnesota to Anders and Sigrid Wee.

The 1900 US census lists Ida (age 11) and her two sisters, Anna S Wee (9) and Nelley M Wee (7).

If so, this would make Ida the one wearing the glasses.

Ida married Hans L Ahlness 

Julius L Shirley (b. 1856 in Norway d. 1925) and Anne Shirley (b. Jun. 2, 1861 in Norway d. Aug. 26, 1950) lived in Otter Tail, Minnesota according to the 1920 US Census.


Anne Shirley's Find A Grave memorial shows her maiden name was Wee.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Marilyn ( Granddaughter)
Anton Amundson was my grandfather and Ernest and Joel and Art Amundson were brothers like you found out. Edwin Ronningen was the brother of Emil's wife Marie like you mentioned and also the brother of Anna, my grandmother married to Anton Amundson. So Ernest, Art & Joel were double first cousins to my mother. The farm was originally settled by Amund Smikop Amundson and his wife Ronnaug. One of their daughters Ronnog (Rena) married Augustine Washington Wood and thus the farm became known as the Wood farm when they moved back to Rothsay and lived on the farm. Their son continued to live there and later it was owned by Ernest Amundson and then following his death by Joel Amundson. The farm is in Wilkin County near Rothsay, Minnesota. The house and the round barn are no longer on the property which is still in the family and now is owned by my cousin's son who has built a house there.

That looks like a Guernsey bull to me..but I am no cow expert..even though I have milked a few milk cows.  In days gone by, the farmers were very proud of their bulls especially ones that threw good offspring.  To have a photo with a promising or proven bull was quite normal. ( I think they liked to show off the photos to their friends.)

Hay Stack Brainerd Antiques

This looks like a hay stack to me.   The women have long hay rakes.  The first hay rakes were made from branches, later they were hand tools similar to our garden rakes today..but wooden with wooden teeth/pegs and larger.  Hay rakes could be used to gather straw too…but this pile looks soft to me like a haystack.

When I was a little girl one year we had several hay stacks in one of our fields..we put up loose hay..and what did not make it in the barn was stacked.  I have a vague recollection of sliding down that haystack.

Remember this photo?

Postcard Agnes Sigrid and Simon Fagstad DL Antiques

Photo Number 932

Postcard Agnes Sigrid and Simon Fagstad DL Antiques back

Rex  is related to these folks.  I made the decision to mail him the photo because he would appreciate it the most.

Here is our conversation.

Hello,
I came across your website by chance and was amazed to see the photograph of Simon, Agnes and Sigrid Fagstad. The Fagstad's were my grandfather's cousins. I have photos of these three at an older age.
Their parents Ole and Martha took in my grandfather in after his mother Lena died at age 29. My grandfather was around 18 months old. He had an older brother and sister and they went to live with other family members. My grandfather's father disappeared from family history about this time and there are no accurate accounts as to why or what happened. I have researched his disappearance and believe him to be buried in an unmarked grave in the Stanley, ND cemetery. Ole, Martha and several of their children/spouse are buried in the Elk Valley Cemetery as well as my great-grandmother Lena.
I have photos of the house where your photograph was most likely taken. The house is no longer standing but the farm where it was located is near the Elk Valley Lutheran Church in McCanna, ND near Bachelor's Grove. The farm is still operational and is owned by family members, specifically Simon's daughters.
Thank you for posting the image. Should you ever care to sell the original please keep me in mind. My late mother had a large collection of antique family photos (1000+) and I have been cataloging them. Rex

I wrote back:

Hi Rex, Is there anyway you can contact Simon's daughters? I like to return photos to the closest family members. If they want the photo I will return it to them..if not I will mail it to you. keep me informed!
It sounds like you have a large collection of family photos..good for you..I hope you are marking them all!
Question: In that photo there are two framed photographs on the wall..do you recognize them? :) Connie

Hello Connie,
I will contact the daughter I know best. I can tell you though that she is not sentimental about old photos. About three years ago she told me that she and her sisters threw out most of the pictures when Simon's wife died. I asked her to please send me any photos of persons they do not know as I may be able to identify them as my mother typically marked her photos with names.
As to the framed photos one I do not recognize, but the photo on the left looks like my great grandmother Lena Fagstad. I have a smaller version of a photograph that shows the full figure of the woman. On the back of the photo is written "16x20 bust only for Ole Fagstad". Also, I have a letter from my grandfather's sister in law and she comments that the Fagstad's have a large photo of Lena.
I am glad you are preserving these old images and posting them for viewing. As I have time I will look at the others and see if they might be of family. Whenever I see old photos at flea markets and antique stores I always stop and look. although all of my mothers relatives were from Minnesota and North Dakota.
Rex

Hi Rex, I think I will just mail the photo to you..I do not want the photos that I save from oblivion to go to anyone that does not appreciate them.

I guess it takes all kind of people to make the world go round. I have contacted some people about their relatives old photos and they do not want them. I do not understand that..but it happens.

At least if I mail it to you I know you will appreciate it!

I usually write a full circle blog post after a photo is received. Can you tell me anything more about the children?

If you could share your older photo by email..my readers would enjoy that.

Yes please check through the photos on the blog as you have time..you may find other relatives there! I will mail the photo to your Texas address. I am off to work now but I should have time tonight to get it ready to mail. Connie

Connie,
Thanks so much! I have two cousins who live in Los Angeles and they are excited about the find too. We three are more like sisters and brother and take vacations to investigate our ancestry.
I am positive that the photograph on the wall is my great grandmother. That photo was taken before 1896 and most probably around 1892-1894.
Simon was born December 23, 1896. He married Lillian Victoria Jenson on October 20, 1928 in Grand Forks. They had four daughters. After his father's retirement and death Simon Fagstad operated the family farm in North Dakota until moving to Larimore in 1956. He died September 29, 1991. He and Lillian are both buried in the Elk Valley Lutheran Church Cemetery in McCanna, ND.
Agnes was born June 26, 1892. She and my grand father's sister in-law were great friends. Agnes was married to Charles McDuffie. James Madison University offers a music scholarship named in her honor. She died January 25, 1978 and is buried in the Bensalem Presbyterian Church in Eagle Springs, North Carolina.
Sigrid was born February 3, 1894. She married George Bang and they had a son George Jr. Sigrid passed away on August 31, 1991. She and her husband are also buried in the Elk Valley Lutheran Church Cemetery.

I've attached a photo of the Fagstad family.
Back row: Sigrid - Dagney - Simon - Agnes
Middle row: Martha - Ole Paddie - Marie - Bertha - Ole
In Front: Magda

Also, just as a side note the Fagstad's had another daughter also named Bertha who died of diphtheria in July of 1895. My great grandmother died a short time after this and my grandfather who was about a year old was taken in by Ole.

I also have a exterior photo of the house that the image you found was taken in but I have not scanned it to digital format yet.

Update from Iggy:
This might be James Frankenberry, widowed in 1910 and living with is daughter and son-in-law, John and Lucy White in Liberty, Ohio (about 25 miles from Centerbury).

Update: From a Relative
James was my 3rd great grandfather, the couple might be John White and Lucy White Frankenberry. The young man on the fence post with dog might be Earl White my Great Granfather. James was born in 1818 and died 1910 at the age of 92. His first wife was Anna Wolfe who died in 1884, he married a second time a Lottie Reed who died in 1906.
