These are two CdV’s from Craig’s Collection.

August Craigs

August Mothers oldest brother

The photo was taken by F H Denison at Fergus Falls Minnesota.

I looked for info on the photographer and came up with nothing, he is not listed at The Minnesota State Historical Website.

Carl August Craigs

Carl August Mother and Dad’s cousin

This time it is stamped Hardy, Denison and Robertson Photographers at Fergus Falls Minn

I found Hardy and Denison in business from 1881 to 1883 and again in 1886.  But no Robertson.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Carl August is likely this man's first and middle names. Carl August was Crown Prince of Sweden and many boys were named after him.

    Google "Carl August" "Fegus Falls" - it brings back 4-5 possibles.

    I like Carl August Tetzlaff - either him or his similarly named father.

    Perhaps less likely is Carl August Schachtschneider

    Find A Grave Memorial# 60136257

  2. There is also a Carl August Halvorsen shown in the 1880 US census - born abt 1866 in Norway. I think we had a Halverson photo not long ago.

  3. I figured it was a shot in the dark with just first names. If the people over at Ottertail County Historical Museum/Society were nice helpful people I would donate it to them for further research. They have left many mentions at Find A Grave to contact them for more info...but of course they charge an hourly fee...I don't think it is the right thing to do but what do I know?:(

  4. Interesting backgrounds in the photos.
