Photo Number 2467

This is a photo that was given to me by one of my husband’s friends.  She owns an antique shop and was going to throw out a bunch of photos. 

OT Ness Family JG

OT Ness Family JG

Pastor  + Mrs O.T. Ness + Ardean

The photographer was Lee’s Studio in Grand Forks ND.

This is possibly Pastor Ole T Ness born Nov 15 1877 and died Sept 16 1941

His wife Gerda J born Oct 29 1886 and died March 26 1973

Ardean Ness born October 4 1921 and died July 7 1982

All are buried at Memorial Park Cemetery in Grand Forks ND

I will guess that this photo was taken about 1931, I wonder if they had more children?

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Some sorts list Ardean as Ordean Gerhard Ness. The photo of his grave doesn't show the first letter, it is "obscured" by grass. Ancestry shows no further/other children.

  2. Oh, no! I hope she didn't throw any of those photos out! Hopefully, she made a generous contribution to your mission and gave you all of those photographs!
