Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
Update from Susanna:
The photographer is Wilkison in Gibson City, Illinois (Ford County). Other photos I found in the internet at ancestry.co.uk stated Wilkison, Main Street Gallery, Gibson City, Illinois or Wilkison Studio, Gibson City, Il. The dates range from about 1885, 1891, 1897, 1901 to 1907.

  1. They, and their clothing, are beautiful. I'll check back later to see if there is additional info on their names.

  2. Oh, I love that you do this. I once found a shoebox full of old frames at a yard sale and under them was a bunch of pictures but the man running the sale didn't want them. So I still have them, it felt so sad to see them abandoned

  3. It's wonderful that these lovely young ladies have names...but Clara is giving me trouble already. I wonder if "Clara" is a middle name? This is a job for Iggy...

  4. I think this might be Clara nee Sandberg Erickson, born 3 Dec 1888 in Indian and married to Albin H Erickson (22 Aug 1885 and died on 31 May 1957 in Berkeley, CA).

    They lived in Minneapolis in 1930-1940 and haad a daughter named Ruth.
