  1. I've never seen such a large hat as part of a uniform.

  2. Oh, I remember that other photo. Just loved it!

    Ellsworth's son Marshall's Find A Grave memorial names his children as well. Maybe some additional clues to help move these photos to a Full Circle??? It's been a while...

    1. I have looked for Marshall Lee Swanson with no luck, the rest of the siblings are girls:(

  3. This photo was mailed to Barb in Minnesota Feb 12 2016
