More photos of the Halverson Family.
Black Duck Minn
Johanna and Lewis Halverson welcomed their first daughter.
Lillian Magnhild Halverson
July 13 1905
I can report that Lillian was born in Beltrami County July 13 1905 and she died September 8 1999 in Golden Valley Minnesota. She married someone with the last name of Kjorlie. She is buried in Norman County Minnesota.
This is the Photographers info that appears on several of the older photos. The Pioneer Studio Blackduck, Minn.
The Minnesota Historical Society has no record of this Studio. They do have a record of L.H. Halverson being in business in Blackduck Minnesota in 1914 and later in Gary, Minnesota in 1920.
I think that perhaps Lewis left Wisconsin for Northern Minnesota about 1900. He probably travelled by Ox cart especially if he was carrying his photographic supplies. I think he met Johanna during his travels. They met sometime before 1905 and married. Blackduck was organized as a village on December 29 1900, and in 1905 the train made it’s way to Blackduck which was a logging area.
Johanna and Lewis with Lillian about age three…about 1908. One gold seal says Halverson Blackduck Minn and the other says Special Portrait.
Ella Geneva Halverson joined the family on October 8, 1909 in Beltrami County she died December 28 1957 in Hennepin County Minnesota and is buried in Norman County.
