The pigeon breasted look to her blouse and the hair suggest a photo taken 1906-1910.

Olson was the photographer in Frazee Minnesota. 

HM Olson was a photographer in Frazee in 1902, perhaps he was there into the 1920’s and 1930’s as that is when I think this photo was taken.

Thanks for stopping by.

My maternal grandparents were from the Frazee area, this may well be someone they knew.

Full Circle 155

This Full Circle began when Iggy left me a link to Find a Grave, I left a message at an email address there. Photos there had been added by a family member, in this case a cousin but he sent me an email address of another cousin who was a Grandson.

I wrote:

Hi  I have a blog that features a old photo every day. 
Your cousin thought you might be interested in  a photo of Katie Kiplinger?  Or K Hazel? 
Here is the link.  I am happy to mail you the photo if you would appreciate it.  Connie at Forgotten Old Photos

Hello Connie,
 What a grand project you have undertaken!

  I appreciate the effort.

  I would be glad to have the photo. I’m not sure that it is my grandmother, but it must be. My grandfather grew up in Waterloo, IN, which is the next town from Auburn. They lived in Denver. I’ve never heard of her being called Katie, but it fits. I have a distant cousin that moved to MN. Maybe that’s how it got there.

What do you want for the photo? If not for you, I can make a donation from PayPal.  
   Thanks indeed!
     Ken

Photo Number 2558  Katie Kiplinger
Hi Ken, So happy to hear you want the photo!  I will get it in the mail on Friday.   I looked for a long time at the two photos at Find A Grave.  They were taken at such different ages.  She was so tall!!
I usually send  one photo to family with no charge, it is a kindness to pass on someday to someone else.   I do appreciate reimbursement for postage, but it is not necessary.   Donate something to someone someday!

I hope you will let me know when you get the photo.  I usually write a Full Circle Post after the photo has gone “home”  so anything you would like to share about her would be great... I enjoyed reading her obituary she lived a good long time .

Connie at Forgotten Old Photos

I sent the photo off in the mail.

HI Connie,
Thanks so much for the photo! 
My grandmother was an amazing woman in her time. She was a school teacher before she got married. 
She was incredibly active in the Colorado State Grange. I believe that she was the first woman president of that organization. A little research could probably prove that. 
She WAS tall for a woman of that time, but I think only 5’7” at her peak. My grandfather was only 5’2”, so she looks much taller in the photo of the two of them. 
She was in a weekly bowling league into her 80’s. 
She was very active in community drives during WWII, as she had 2 sons involved in the war, as a bomber navigator and also a medic. 
She was very active in the local Methodist church. 
She was a prolific canner. Having survived Then Great Depression, she let nothing go to waste. I have never had pickled crabapples anywhere else. They were amazing! When she moved to a nursing home for her final years, we cleaned out the cellar, and there were food items from 20 years previous in there. I even ate some.
My grandparents ran a subsistence farm until the 60’s, when they started selling off their land in the Denver suburb of Wheat Ridge. My father used to say that during the depression and WWII, they would sell butter to buy margarine. 
I hope this gives a little insight… 
Thanks again!
  Ken

Too bad we don’t know what Michael’s last name is.  He would be about 65 years old.  In the first photo he is sitting in a thing called a Baby Tenda… I have many photos of me sitting in one.  It was square with a seat in the center and a child could sit in it and play with toys or eat.  It was perfect for keeping small children off of drafy floors.

Thanks for stopping by.

Update on the photographer from Jacqi:
I know this is a stretch, but could the photographer actually be Louis F. Dworshak of Duluth, MN? The insignia looks like it says "Dvorshak," and this is the closest I can find.

Full Circle 154

This Full Circle began with a comment left on the blog.

I really would like a copy of this. She was my great, great, grandmother. How do I do this?

(My email is in my profile and anyone can contact me!  If someone leaves an email address in a comment I usually delete it so it does not appear.  I need an snail mail address to mail the photograph to. )

Hello,  I don't know much about her personally.  She was my great great grandmother.  I knew my great grandmother very well and I have been told she was much like her mother.  I would like that picture.  I don't have many of my ancestors pictures.

Anna Akin  Photo Number 1864
Previously research had been done by Sue and Susanna Rosalie, they had the right person, just no answer from the person at Ancestry with Anna in their family tree.  I presented this photo back in March of 2015.   It took two years before a home was found.

I mailed the photo and a few days later got a response! 

Hello,  I received the photo today, Thank you so much!   
She had 12 children with her husband James Benjamin Martin Akin.  Her parents were Epriam and Catherine (Crause) Stone.  Her father was a First cousin of a signer of the Declaration of Independence.  They moved to Texas where her husband died in 1893.  Have not been able to find his resting place.  Anna was buried in Colorado.

I am wondering if this wasn’t a Stage Coach Stop, it looks like there are bags and a chair setting outside.  It is an awfully large building to be just a settlers cabin.
