These are photos I have recently acquired of my ancestors. The first one is of my great great great grandfather's family, the first of my relatives on that line to come to America. The second picture is his son's family, my great great grandparents. The little boy in front is my grandfather's father. The third photo is my great great grandmother's family. The woman holding the baby in the second picture is the lady seated on the bottom left in the third picture. These photos range from about 1890 to to around 1901. The same woman, my great great grandmother died in childbirth in 1903. The fourth picture is her flower arrangement at her funeral. Very impressive as none of these humble Swedish immigrant families had much wealth to speak of.
