The gentleman are dressed very differently, one has a three piece suit complete with tie and cuffed trousers.  The other a turtle neck with a boxy looking  more relaxed looking suit coat..with straight leg trousers.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
Update from Iggy:
According to the United States Census, 1930, Lloyd Everett Gilson lived in Lebanon, Linn, Oregon. He was born on 15 May 1895 in Oregon and died in Nov 1963, and was married to Mavia S. (b. c. 1897 in Michigan d. 1975 in Oregon).

Lloyd is Find A Grave Memorial# 28389130. He had at least three younger brothers, Mervin, Ronald, and Ralph. Lloyd ran a hardware store. He and Mavia appear to have been childless. Mavia, while born in Michigan, grew up in Marion, Marion, Oregon (the same as the Pearsons in previous posts), her father working at a Saw Mill.

  1. The gentleman standing looks as though he is not accustomed to wearing a suit.

  3. I find it interesting that the both the Pearson women and Lloyd's wife were in Marion county, Oregon, and yet the photographs of each ended up in North Dakota. Do you suppose there is any family connection between them all?
