This is the group that we have had before…The Princeton Group that visits the Detroit Lakes area and Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge. I have a feeling that one or more of the gals might be from Detroit Lakes.
Jan 21, 1939 Chas, Ruby, Perc, Addle, Roy + Vic O’Salle Princeton Minn
I have a number of photos of Chas. If a relative of his comes along they would get a wonderful bunch of old photos.
Thanks for stopping by.

There is a Clarence Victor Ossell born 16 Jan 1916. He was living in Princeton in 1940. It's a long shot, but you never know!ReplyDelete
Not a long shot. Read the history!ReplyDelete
Established in 1958.
Ossell's retail history dates back 55 years when Louise and Vic Ossell, with her cousin Percy Johnson and Wife, Adel, opened Ossell & Johnson Department Store in 195. It carried everything small-town Minnesota needed. The Johnsons retired in 1979 and left ownership of the building and retail store to the Ossell Family, which has nurtured the business into a retail niche. Carol and Charlie are the current owners and Kelly Louise-Ossell Guptil, granddaughter to Vic and Louise, is the full time manager and buyer.
I sent the store an email, now we wait. Thanks MJM and Iggy:)Delete
I have many photos of this same group of friends...so I hope someone out there wants some of the photos.Delete
Now it seems we are looking for Percy Johnson, Adeline Johnson and Clarence Victor Ossell
I think Adeline is in Photo Number 1329 too.ReplyDelete
Yes and her group has many other photos on this blog. At last count I have 30 photos but not all have been on the blog.Delete
