    1. Looks like it might have come out of the bucket/pot at his feet?

      I think this is Find A Grave Memorial# 20736308.

    3. I found Ludwig born in 1893 and died in 1984. He had a daughter but there are no other relatives listed in her obit.

  2. Looks like he is holding a cake. There was a K.J. Nesheim "of the town of Long Lake" as reported by The Brainerd Daily Dispatch in 1908. Apparently a farmer from what I've read. I've invited a possible relative to comment.

  3. "i free" is probably norwegian "i fra" which means from.

  4. The first name might be ... Ole J. Nesheim.
