Not much to go on.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. Just a shot in the dark here - There is a Elden L. Koehler listed in the 1930 US Census as 4/12 years old, son of Paul and Esther - living in Craig, Burt, Nebraska, which is about 7 miles from Oakland. I was unable to determine what the "L" in his middle name stood for...This Elden ended up in Ohio. I could discover no tie to "Minnesota."

    There is also an Elden L Hamata (1927) and an Elden L. Farner (1927) for which I cannot determine what their "L" stood for... There are no entries that I can find in Ancestry.Com that would "align" with a surname beginning with "L".

  2. Such a sweet picture.

  3. What a cutie! Too bad that second name was so hard to read. I wonder how many one year old Eldens were out there in Oakland, Nebraska, in the 1930s...

  4. Hello!
    The name could be LEUSIN or LEUSINE.
    I am new here and appreciate the work you put into it! Thank you!
