  1. I think it says Safire. LOL - I checked Lafere, Dafore, Lafue and came up with nothing.

  2. Page 193 of http://murphylibrary.uwlax.edu/digital/thesis/1978/hill.pdf says there is no known person associated with "The Windsor" photography studio. This pdf document is a tour de force on "old photos" - it is worth peeking at Far Side.

    1. Cool..they only have one photo marked The Windsor, it must not have existed for long, photographers were moving all the time.

  4. 1900 Census
    Napoleon E. Lafore and Olive Lafore, living in Sparta City, Wisconsin
    Children: Jessie S., daughter age 4
    Harry E., son age 2
    Vera L., daughter age 1
    This does not match with the birth info listing a child born in 1896 as a male.

  6. Napoleon and Olive LaFore were my grandparents. Harry was my father. I recognize all the other names as relatives. My mother hated all of these people therefore I didn't know them very well.
