Full Circle 125

This Full Circle began when Iggy (Intense Guy) left a message at Ancestry for a Tree Holder.

The fellow contacted me by email.

Hello!
Helmer Johnson is my great grandfather on my mom's side.
We have reunions every other year and the next one is August 2016. We are making plans now.
We would be thrilled to get a copy of your photo of him.

Helmer and Laura Johnson  Photo Number 1950

I mailed off the photo.

Jul 20

I received the photo! Thank you so much!

I won't be home until Friday and then I will send you a snail mail thank you!

All the best,

Ken

Later he shared:

All I have is the part of the family tree that has Helmer Johnson in it.

The tree has 800+ people in it, mostly Norwegians going back a long ways. All my grandparents were Norwegian immigrants around the turn of the century.

Thanks for stopping by.

Photo Number 1975

This is a photo from the Antique Mall in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Henry Zeck DL Ant
The photographer is from Casselton N.D.
The lady is wearing a really different patterned blouse with what looks to be small crochet decorations.  She also has a watch fob pinned to her blouse.  I think she may have some kind of hat with a large bow in her hair.

There are two names on the back of the photo.  Henry Zech Zick and another unreadable name that starts with a M----.

Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Becky:
I think that this couple might be Henry Zick and his wife Pauline (nee Gruel) who were married in a rural church near Leonard in 1900. Leonard is just south of Casselton a few miles. 

If this is Henry and Pauline Zick they had five children, amongst them were Victor and Lorraine.  Victor had a number of children.
