Photos of Rudolph Lunde

The Family of Ole Pederson Lunde & Ingeborg Olsdatter Viker

Ingeborg Viker Lunde1889
Ingeborg was Cornelia's mother. I don't think there are any surviving photos of her parents, Ole Nilson Viker & his wife Margit. This photo was taken in Albert Lea, MN. Rudolph was born April 7, 1888 - guessing he is close to a year old and that ages of the children in the photo are: Peder "Pete" age 7, Margaret age 6, and Rudolph age 1.
10 Cousins photo1905 approxChildren 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.
Rudolph & Hattie wedding1915Rudolph married Hattie Nordland on November 27,1915
Ole Lunde family1919MN. Cornelia is wearing the blouse she wore at her marriage. Photo taken because Cornelia had traveled to MN from MT for Elwood's birth and Pete was home from the logging camps in Canada so Ole wanted a studio photo taken.
