10 Cousins photo

Children of Asle & Ole Lunde. Asle was killed October 1891(age 46) when kicked by a horse. His wife Gunhild died 5 years later in 1896 - at the time of her death their 4 children ranged in age from 5 to 12 years old. These 4 children stayed in their home with their grandmother, Else Gravli, and spent summers, most holidays and lots of time with Ole & Ingeborg Lunde's 6 children after the death of their parents, and were referred to as "The 10 cousins". Asle's children were Elsie, Florence, Palma & Alfred. Ole's children were Pete, Margaret, Rudolph, Viola, Cornelia & Atlanta. Photo taken 1905 approx.

Elsie Lunde & friendsPossibly taken about 1902 for High School graduation? Guessing Elsie is about age 18. ID'd by Elsie's daughter Margaret as Elsie, far right, and Mattie Skaug, lower center. Margaret did not know who the other two friends were.
Elsie, Palma & Margaret Lunde Maybe Palma's graduation about 1905? Elsie & Palma were children of Asle Lunde, and Margaret was their cousin, daughter of Ole Lunde.

Skaar family Christmas

ID'd by Margaret Skaar Van Loo as: Back row L-R: Pete Skaar, Gertrude Nelson & Inga Skaar Nelson. Inga is Pete's sister (1872-1849), and Gertrude is her daughter, born in 1912. Front row L-R: Solveig, Margaret, Elsie & Ashle Skaar. Elsie Lunde Skaar died in 1925, and twins were born in 1922, so I'm guessing this may have been taken about 1927?
