Thanks for stopping by.
Update from MJM:
I found a Luther Mayre Ford, born 1886 in Mississippi and died 1959 in California. He was married in 1906 in Otero County, Colorado to Methe K. Rasmussen. Methe Rasmussen was born 1886 in Massachusetts or Nebraska, depending on which census you view, and died 1967 in California. According to a tree on Ancestry, Methe had a sister named Rosa K Rasmussen born 1877 in Wisconsin. Perhaps the Aunt Rose in the photo? I did find a Rose Rasmussen who married George Rich in 1907 in Rocky Ford, CO.

From Scott:
The lady in the photo is my Great-Grandmother Rose Kristine. She was the sister of Methe who married Luther Mayre Ford. The Fords and the Rasmussen's / Rich's were very close. Rose married George Rich. I remember them both as a young child and used to sit on his lap to watch TV. This is a photo I haven't seen of her. By the way, my five year old daughter is named "Rose Kristine" after her Great-Great Grandmother.

This is a photo from the antique shop in Laporte Minnesota.

Louella and Loren Laporte ant

The photographer was J Johnson in Detroit Minn.  Detroit was lengthened to Detroit Lakes in about 1926.  There was too much confusion between Detroit Minnesota and Detroit Michigan.

“It was not until 1926 that the townspeople voted to rename their municipality “Detroit Lakes”—many residents were tired of their mail and parcels being sent to the bigger and better known Detroit to the east.”

Luella and Loren Laporte back

So Luella and Loren were born before 1926….unless the photographer was using up old cardstock.

The Minnesota Historical Society has John Johnson in business in Detroit Lakes in 1902.  They also say he worked until the 1940’s.
