Full Circle 74

This was a delightful Full Circle!  I got the nicest letter!  Marie Bertha and Patty Postcard DL Ant Number 1298

Photo Number 1298

Patty, Bertha and Marie

The one of a kind researcher Iggy found James on Ancestry!  His mother, Marie is in this postcard photo.

James wrote:

I have just received the most amazing postcard that you and your researchers were able to send to me.  I am amazed, very pleased and extremely happy about all this.  Let me give you some background to help you understand my emotions.

I was born in North Dakota, my mother a Fagstad was one of the children that is pictured on that postcard.  My family moved to Saint Paul when I was one year old in 1933.  I grew up in Minnesota and spent many summers in northern Minnesota.  I have been in Osage a few times when I was young. (That is the town I live near.)

My mother taught English at the high school in Minot until she married in 1931.  She was greatly loved by her students and fellow teachers.  Apparently, her departure to marry was marked by much sadness at the school.  Needless to say her expectations were that her son excel in English.

I spend a lot of time working on my family geneology and have family photos stored on my computer.  The postcard is now safely stored.

My mother had six sisters and two brothers.  She passed away in 1998 at the age of 99.  Bertha Fagstad, a sister is the other girl in the photo.  She left the farm and married a young man, also named Fagstad.  They moved to California and loved their lives there.  By coincidence, her daughter is coming to visit us next week.  She will be thrilled to see the photo. The young boy, Paddy Fagstad, passed a few years after this photo was taken.  I think the photo was taken about 1910.

I am hoping you find more photos that are of interest to me.  I will follow your blogspot closely.  I have enclosed a small sum that will help on your expenses.  Please contact me if I can be helpful in your valuable efforts.

James

Thanks for the encouragement!  Thanks also to Iggy for his tireless research:)

Fishing DL Ant

Someone got a mess of fish. My husband says they look like Bullheads.  My first thought about this photo: is that it was from the 1920’s because of the ladies hat.

I will guess that the automobile is a 1926 Buick.  I am not an old car expert.  If someone thinks differently please leave a comment!

Update from Gustavas: 
My Grandmother's sister. She was the daughter of George Hart, and Grace (Beaulieu) hart. From the Waubun Area. Their homestead was at what is now US 59, and 113 just East of Waubun, on the Northwest side of the intersection. Home is still there. 

Incidentally, Grace Hart is also in another of your pictures... the "6 girls in hats #983". Most likely they are "modeling" hats mad by Grace's mother-in-law, Jane B. (Wamsley) Hart, who was well known, and rather proud of the hats she made.

More than likely siblings.  Note the smallest boy has lace up shoes instead of button shoes. President Roosevelt proclaimed the high button shoe out in 1933, when he saw it listed in the cost of living index.  The children are all wearing heavy dark stockings.  The boys both seem to be wearing knickers.  The girls dresses have one shape fits all look to their dresses, they are both wearing strands of pearls and have bows in their hair.  I wonder what the older boy thought of that stiff collar?
