Photo Number 1558

Another photo postcard in the album I purchased recently at Kabekona Corners Antique Shop.
Stella Quam Holte K Corners
What a cutie.

Stella Quam Holte 
The postcard is an Azo with triangles pointing up so it is most likely from 1904 to 1918.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

Update from Iggy:
Stella Quam (1914/16 in Cherry Grove, Goodhue, Minnesota) was the daughter of Henry C (he is in Photo Number 1556) and Martha Quam.

In 1930, she was living with her aunt and uncle Charles and Christine Steberg in Wanamingo, Goodhue, Minnesota with her sisters Hazel and Sybil. I do not know where Henry went, nor who Stella married.

Sister or halfsister : Hazel Margaret Quam Thoreson (1918-2008) ----in her obituary it is said that she was preceded by a sister, a brother, two half brothers and a half sister.


Stella and Orvin had at least two children:

    Stella and Orvin had at least two children:
    Roland Stanford Holthe *22Oct 1941 Dodge County, Minnesota
    Robert Arland Holthe *19Feb 1945 Hennepin County, Minnesota

    https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VCLC-487

    And now comes the fun part: According to family search.org both sons married and there are also entries for children of Robert Arland Holthe, born in 1968 and 1971, which are the grandchildren of Stella Quam Holthe. I will send you detailed information on them in an e-mail so hopefully you will be able to make a contact.

    And my other suggestion is to try and contact Dana at rootsWeb. She has submitted data there on Orvin Allroy Holthe and Stella, which I mentioned above. There is an e-mail address available.
