Photo Number 958

This is a snapshot from the antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota.

Hilma Roak?? Rook? Raok?? My Aunt Franklin Location Mich.

There is a Franklin Center Michigan that is now known as Franklin.  There are also several Franklin Townships in Michigan.  I struck out looking for a Franklin Location.

I would think that Aunt Hilma is the lady in the doorway.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. I suppose the label refers to the woman in the doorway - as the rider of the horse appears to be a young man. A confusing labeling to be sure!

    The only (very tenuous) person I could find is Hilma Hook/Rook, married to a Clark Theodore Hook/Rook (b. 7 Dec 1888). They are living in Chicago,IL (1910-1920) and later move to Saint Paul, MN. Clark's mother was from Michigan, so perhaps this photo was taken at the Franklin location (meaning the mother's relatives).

  2. Another interesting photo. I love your blog, Connie. You find the most unique pictures to share.

  3. I have been catching up and love them all. I had a crazy cousin who buried the family pictures with her mother.
