  1. I think Mrs. Skoog (born Lundeen in 1862, died 1951) might be this woman.

    Some of her correspondence exists.

  2. More information about her son (and other family).

  3. The top of page 6 has an article on the hardware store mentioned in the last link supplied by Anonymous.

  4. She was so pretty...I love to hear about people's lives..regular people from the "old days"...I have no interest in these reality shows on t.v. they're not interesting to me at all. But show me someone like Emily and I am fascinated!

  5. Emily is a beautiful woman, and her skin is so smooth and unblemished. I am positive her photos were not retouched or enhanced in any way by the photographer.

  6. It's so nice to see her photograph and read about her life like this. She is a Scandinavian beauty!

  7. I believe Anonymous has the right person. I found a couple family trees with photos(different era but I believe the same woman), so I sent a message to the owner of one. Hopefully she/he will come by to check it out. ~Abra

  8. This photo is being mailed to Shelley in Missouri on Monday morning:)

  9. Emily was my great-grandmother--I can see family resemblances passed on through her. Thanks for connecting me with this site, and her photo.
