The photographers were Sunbeam   Hess Bros 38 Wash Ave S.   I think this is the Studio of Hess Bros Henry and Frederick who were at that address in Minneapolis Minnesota  from 1896-1899 and also in 1901.

Gorge Jobes family DL ant

Thanks for stopping by.

This is a possibility:

George Jobes, born 18 April 1868, Maple Grove, Hennepin county, Minnesota. Son of Bishop and Julian (Cline) Jobes. Died 25 August 1940 in Hennepin county. Married May 1892 to Annie May Martin, daughter of Stewart Martin and Sarah Pryor.

Info from Michael:
The photo includes George Jobes (son of Bishop Jobes and Julian Cline); standing behind his seated wife, Annie May Martin Jobes (daughter of Stewart Martin and Sarah Pryor). The children: Charles Wesley Jobes, standing next to George, He was born in 1891, and is that little boy, wearing that furred coat, that is also featured on your website. The little girl is Hazel Mae Jobes, born 1901. The little boy is Alvin Earl Jobes, born 1904. From the children's appearances, I would then judge the photograph to be dated sometime around 1907-1909.

Kids on a fence DL ant

I couldn’t resist buying this photo of seven children on a fence.  I wish it had been marked. They seem to be sitting in three different groups.  Perhaps they are all cousins sitting on Grandma’s fence. They are all wearing hats and the boy on the end hold some kind of ball.

We have a clue but not a big one.

April 27 1899

Age 8 months 9 days

That would make a birthdate August 18 1898

Now for a question?  Do we look for a girl or a boy.  I am thinking a girl because the gown looks frilly??  What do you think?

Cute girl Floodwood ant

Sadly the photo is not marked.  It seems to me to be an uncomfortabe pose for the child, her right arm looks awkward to me.

When the photographers used these fancy frames/folders, apparently they came in two pieces, the photo was slipped inbetween the two and sealed….there is no way to take the photo out to look at the back without damaging the folder or the photo or both.

Thanks for stopping by.

Alvina Anderson Bolte
She looks like a school girl to me.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:
Alvina Catherine Anderson
Birth Date: 4 Dec 1894
Birth Place: Nerstrand, Rice County, Minn.
Marriage Date: 21 Feb 1920
Marriage Place: Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah
Father: Ole Anderson
Mother: Annette Jacobson
Spouse: Ernest Christel Bolte


Update from Jacqi:
What's interesting is that Ernst Bolte, despite the German-sounding name, was born in Hawaii, and was apparently a widower when he married Alvina. Best I can tell from the 1930 census, they had two children in common by that time--a son and a daughter--and perhaps more by the time of the 1940 census.

It looks like the family settled in the northern California Bay area, in Berkeley. Alvina died there on January 10, 1993, but I haven't been able to locate her obituary to find any descendant information.

On the back of the CdV we find that ME Tyler was the Artist at Union City, Ind

Indiana Cousins Peacock

Indeed there are people named Peacock who lived in Randolph County Indiana.  John and Rebecca were pioneers, they had a son named Amos who married Rachael born Sept 1 1837, they had a daughter named Annie Laurie Peacock Born Oct 7, 1866.   I imagine there are many other possibilities also.

I think this photo was taken  in the 1870’s sometime.

Unknown Fam DL ant

A wonderful photo, and if you are to go by “the hair rules”  which some mothers obeyed.  This is two boys with hair parted on the side and two girls with hair parted down the middle.  The smallest child made me smile.

Erickon Studio was the photographer in Fargo ND.  Erickson was working in town as a photographer from 1903 to 1916.  It was 1903 –1908 that his business was known as Erickson Studio so we can date this photo to that time frame.

To bad we don’t know who they are.

Thanks for stopping by.

Now we are looking for the Johnsons with a Warren and a Brooksy with a parent of Geo possibly.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from MJM
The 1900 US Census for St Peter, Nicollet, MN has the following family:
Geo Johnson, head, born March 1869, age 33, occupation barber
Ollie Johnson, wife, born April 1882, age 28, 2 children, 1 living
Warren Johnson, son, born May 1899
(year of birth and age for Ollie are a bit off)

MN birth index shows a Warren Ferry Johnson born to G. W. Johnson and Laura Aurelia Johnson on 12 May 1899, Nicollet County.

MN death index shows a Warren F Johnson born 12 May 1899, died 22 Jan 1989 Becker County, MN, mothers maiden name Wilcox.

A WWI draft registration for Warren Farry Johnson list his next of kin as Mrs Ollie A Charlton of Goodhue MN.

Update:
I found a Brooks Y R Johnson Born March 2 1894 Died April 9 1898 His parents were G W and O A Johnson. He is buried in Le Suer County at the Sharon Cemetery. 
St Peter and Le Suer are 11 miles apart.

From MJM:
On the index to MN deaths and burials, the parents of Brooks Y Johnson (1894-1898) are listed as George Johnson and Ollie Johnson. The MN marriage index shows a marriage on 11/24/1889 in Le Sueur County between George Johnson and Ollie Wilcox.

G H Ribble was the photographer in St Peter  (Minnesota)  He was in St Peter from 1894-1900, 1904 and 1906.  There was a notation at the Minnesota Historical Society that said he had a booth at the Nicollet County Fair.
The fellow appears to have some kind of diagonal stripe suit that really photographed quite well.

I have four old photos from Maquoketa Iowa.  I will share them over the next four days.  One of my faithful blog readers MJM will take the photos and put them on the Retro Maquoketa Iowa Facebook page.  Perhaps they will find a home.  Back in June I had a wedding photo, Photo Number 2621 that was from Maquoketa. I have no idea if or how the photos are related.  These photos came from a friend, who owns an antique shop and she was going to throw them out.

Skrivseth was the photographer in Maquoketa Iowa

This is possibly a family photo of siblings a girl and three boys.  This photo is mose likely from the 1930’s.
