Johan B. Dahl  perhaps a brother of the young man yesterday.
Yes they are brothers. In the 1880 census Johny is listed. 

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Anonymous:


Johanes Halvorsen Dahl 

"Born in St Paul, Minnesota, USA on 23 Jun 1871 to Ole Halvorsen Dahl and Johanna Wilhelmsdtr Bull. He passed away on 1949 in Fargo, Cass, North Dakota, USA."



Wilhelm B. Dahl left Norway April 29 (!) 1870, together with parents Ole Halvorsen Dahl (Carpenter) and Johanne Wilhelmsdatter, children Augusta (7), Wilhelm (5) and Torvald. 

In 1880 they live in New Prairie, Hope, Minnesota. Additional siblings Tilda, Johny and Hilmar.

  1. Whoever J B Grossfield was.... :) they are proving a most elusive photographer!

    I suspect this is Wilhelm's brother "Johny" in the 1880 census.

  2. From the ancestry link yesterday, about Johanes Halvorsen Dahl (which, from the age, must be the same as Johny, I think):

    "Born in St Paul, Minnesota, USA on 23 Jun 1871 to Ole Halvorsen Dahl and Johanna Wilhelmsdtr Bull. He passed away on 1949 in Fargo, Cass, North Dakota, USA."

    The "B" is probably from the mother side (Bull). It seems they were proud of this name, since they kept using it.

    Bull is the family name of two old Norwegian families (perhaps decending from England). The most famous Bull is perhaps Ole Bull (1810-188), the violinist, which also had some success in the US.
