Ernest Gerhard Tweet  15 years old
Dec.9, 1911
From that information he must have been born in 1896 or thereabouts.
Thanks for stopping by.
I had time too look a bit.  At Find A Grave:
Ernest Gerhard Tweet  Born Dec 9 1895  Illinois  Died May 7 1917 in Iowa.  He is buried in Lost Island Lutheran Cemetery.  His parents were Henry Tweet 1862 –1931 and Anna Holland Tweet 1865-1944. 
Ernest had one sister Agnes P. Tweet Gould  1898-1987
I wonder why he died so young? 


  1. Sweet face! My grandfather's family lost two boys this young and grandmother's family lost
    a boy at that age. Late 1800's early 1900's I have found two of their grave's.

  2. The 1915 Iowa census shows him working as "Farm Labor" (presumably for his father) - perhaps a farm accident - or one of those many diseases of the times killed him - he has a "doppelganger" that served in the 86th division of the US Army that served in WWI - but I am sure this Ernest is not that one.

    1. His sister had a number of children - perhaps they will want this photo.

      Find A Grave Memorial# 71999887 shows son Donald living in Minnesota too....
