Photo Number 1854

This is a photo from Craig’s Collection.
Gertrude Jones and son Craigs
Jake Jones wife + baby
Gertrude and Mervin?
Carlson in Ogden IA was the photographer.
Gertrude seems to be wearing Pince Nez glasses.  The chain you see going into her hair was most likely attached to an ear hook that went partially around her ear.   Other methods of attachment of that chain were by hair pin, or a brooch worn on a dress or apron that retracted the ribbon or chain when not in use.  Men’s  Pince Nez might be tied to a buttonhole or lapel.

Funny thing I have a friend by the last name of Carlson that still lives in Ogden Iowa.  I wonder if they are related to the photographer.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
I think this is Gertrude Sarah "Gertie" nee' Conn Jones (1887 - May 21, 1964  and her son, Mervin Dale Jones (Feb. 9, 1917 - Dec. 19, 1987
"Gertie"'s husband was Jacob "Jake" Albert Jones 

From the obituaries Mervin married Dorothy and they had a son and a daughter.  Mervin was an Auctioneer.
