Update from Iggy:
We find a possible family of Carlson's living in Lake Elizabeth, Kandiyohi, Minnesota during 1900-1910 consisting of Peter S. (Dec 1865) and his wife Hanne C (Mar 1865), both born in Sweden and a number of children, including Ellen E (1882), Agnes F (1894) and Essie E (7 Oct 1896) or (perhaps) Alice? (Dec 1895).

    I'm not too certain about this one...

  2. Marcellus Afton Egge (25 Nov 1917- 22 Jun 1990) lived in East Lake Lillian, Kandiyohi, Minnesota so I feel like I found the "right" Carlson's.

  3. Apparently, Peter and his son, Eddie Theodor(e) Carlson went insane. Peter's name is shown in probate records recording expenses for a doctor visiting the insane."

    Eddie lived and passed away at the Minnesota Asylum for the Insane (Find A Grave Memorial# 87608773):

    "In 1866 the Legislature established the first "Minnesota Asylum for the Insane" in St. Peter. It was later known as the St. Peter State Hospital, and is now called the St. Peter Regional Treatment Center. Originally this was the cemetery for the Asylum and then the State Hospital whose patients were those deemed insane at the time but without any suggestion of criminality."

    Hann(ah) appears to have moved to Minneapolis by 1930, where she is shown as widowed in the city directory for that year. As to what happened to these three (then young) women, I've no luck in discovering.

    1. Such a sad story--melancholy also in that there was very little true help for the insane in those earlier years.

      I wonder if the daughters had married, making it difficult to trace them. Apparently, the one who inscribed the photo knew what became of them...
