m a r k e r i c k s o n p a i n t i n g s Family Photographs - 1865 - 2017 Sweden * Italy * England * France * Germany New York City * California * Colorado * North Dakota
Here is a one of a kind family portrait taken one hundred years ago this year. As I continue with my research of the Nelson Family, this portrait photographed on the family farm in Painted Woods, North Dakota in 1918 is beyond the pale of uniqueness.
It is truly something to behold. It comes from my grandmother Clara's photo album, the original being in black and white. The first three generation of Nelson's to immigrate from Sweden to the Dakotas in 1903 are present.
Clara wrote along the side of the image the name of every parent, brother aunt, uncle and cousin you see here. I truly thank her for that. Makes all this far easier than guessing or never knowing.
