This is a CdV from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
This CdV is on green card stock. I will guess that this photo was taken in the 1870’s.
Thanks for stopping by.
How frustrating that there's a name but not a first name! And do you suppose that this is the picture of Mrs. Edeland or a picture to Mrs. Edeland? It's hard to tell from the photograph, but she seems rather young to be addressed simply as Mrs. anybody. Can't see any ring, although that might not have been a custom back then. Well, hope she finds her way home somehow!
Your guess is as good as mine! :)
In the Minnesota, Territorial and State Censuses, for 1905 for Emanuel Edeland is listed living in Lac qui Parle working as a minister with what appears to be his wife - I can't make out the name - it looks like Olinda born about 1875.
