This is the Swenson/Swanson family.  Children: John, Martha and Marshall.  Their parents are John and Gertrude.
Thanks for stopping by.

I will guess that this photo was taken about 1885 or 1886 from the birth dates of the children.

Update from Iggy:
John X Swenson (Oct. 24, 1843, Sweden - May 16, 1937 in Chisago County, Minnesota)

Gertrud Kristina nee' Eriksdotter Swenson (Jan. 2, 1848, Sweden - Apr. 2, 1934 in Chisago County, Minnesota) 

John August Swanson (1866 - 1953) 
Martha Christine Swenson Larson (1871 - 1947) 
Marshall William Swanson (1875 - 1949 in Anoka, Anoka County, Minnesota)

  1. They are actually Swenson. Martha married a Larson. John X Swenson and Gertrud are in Find A Grave.

  2. Now, there's a refreshing change: they practically gave you the outline of their family tree! Here's hoping for a fast Full Circle on this one!
