37 1890s-1940s Photographs of Related People, many from Kansas and Illinois: Lindahl, Jaderborg, Hays, Gundy, Nothstein, Paulson, etc.


37 photographs, from about the 1890s to the mid 20th century, of people from Illinois,  Kansas, Arkansas, and other Midwest and Western states, including several of the Lindahl and Jadersborg families of Lindsborg, Kansas.  

Most of the surnames are Scandinavian and German in origin.  Interestingly, a Lindsborg, Kansas, website indicates that Lindsborg is "Little Sweden, USA".  

The woman in the photograph above is Antonia Christina Teichgraeber (1887-1964), daughter of Ernest Theodore Teichgraeber and Emma (Hartwig) Teichgraeber.  The surname is also seen as Teichgraber.  The "Helen L." mentioned in the identification was Helen Theodora (Teichgraeber) Lindahl, wife of Samuel August Lindahl and daughter of Antonia's brother Emil John Teichgraeber and wife Ida Sophia (Johnson) Teichgraeber.  


Another photograph shows two young women: Edna Soderstrom of Hoisington, Kansas, and Lydia Jaderborg, presumably of Lindsborg, Kansas.  Interestingly, Lydia J. (Jaderborg) Blomgren, wife of Dr. Carl Blomgren, is buried in St. Mary's Cemetery at Stonington, Maine, which fact might account for how the photographs ended up at an antique mall in the same Maine county, where I purchased them in 2005.  



Still another photograph, taken in 1913 by the Martin studio of Chicago, Illinois, shows Rev. Otto Karlstrom and his wife and children.



If you recognize any of the names in the photographs, or if you have corrections to my spelling, please leave a comment - being careful to respect the privacy of living people - or contact me directly.

c1890s Highway Surveyor's Book for Andover, Maine


c1890s Highway Surveyor's Book for the town of Andover, Maine.  The booklet measures approximately 6-1/2" by 4-1/4".

The surveyor was presumably Carlton Hutchins, whose name appears on the top edge of the front cover.


Names mentioned inside:
  • Miss Martha Cushman of South Andover, Maine - perhaps Martha Talbot Cushman, born April 8, 1885, daughter of Charles and Martha Stone (Talbot) Cushman; married Ralph H. Penley in 1913 and apparently at least one other time, to a Mr. Scott, as a Social Security document implies.
  • Carlton Hutchins - perhaps Carlton H. Hutchins, born May 19, 1836 at Hanover, New Hampshire, son of Hazen Kimball Hutchins and Louisa Preston (Abbott) Hutchins; Carlton married Persis Bennett Cutting; among their children was Eben F. Hutchins, perhaps the Eben listed next.  Carlton died at Andover, Maine, on June 23, 1906.
  • Eben Hutchins - possibly Eben Franklin Hutchins, born in February 1867 at Andover, Maine, son of Carlton Hutchins, mentioned above, and Persis B. (Cutting) Hutchins.  Eben married Susan A. Poor on August 9, 1897 at Andover, Maine.  Eben died August 30, 1939.  He and Susan are buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery at Andover, Maine.
  • Samuel Akers - possibly the Samuel Akers born in New Hampshire about 1817 or his son Samuel Gardner Akers born at Andover, Maine, on December 6, 1850
  • Willie Hutchins - possibly the William S. Hutchins, born in 1883, son of Carlton Hutchins and Persis (Bennett) Hutchins of Andover, Maine

As you can see from the images below, there's not a lot of meat in the booklet.  It seemed to have been used more for scribbling and listing plants then for official business.

















1833 Deed, Saco, Maine: William Dearing of Waterboro, Maine, to Cornelius Boothby of Saco, Maine


Deed signed on November 11, 1833 where William Dearing and wife Eunice Dearing of Waterboro, Maine, sold a parcel of land at Saco, Maine, to Cornelius Boothby of Saco.  

The deed was witnessed by Isaac Dearing and Orinda Dearing and was signed in the presence of Isaac Dearing, Justice of the Peace.  The deed was recorded with Jeremiah Goodwin, Register of Deeds for York County, Maine.



The description of the parcel notes that it was about sixty acres in size and was the same lot that Cornelius Boothby had purchased from Joseph Scammon 3 in 1820.  Whether the Dearings had a lien on the land or whether Cornelius had sold it previously to William Dearing and was purchasing it back, I don't know.  The description further mentions that the 1820 deed contained a more particular description of the parcel.

Eunice Dearing signed the deed to extinguish her dower interest in the parcel.


From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

William Dearing, Jr., was born March 24, 1776 at Waterboro, Maine, son of William Dearing and Sarah (Rumery) Dearing.  On September 24, 1806 at Waterboro, Maine, William, Jr., married Eunice Harper, daughter of Samuel Harper, Jr., and Sarah (Godfrey) Harper.    William died February 7, 1860 and Eunice on January 10, 1865. They're buried in the Deering Cemetery at Waterboro, Maine.

The Orinda Dearing who witnessed the deed was presumably the daughter of William Dearing and Eunice (Harper) Dearing.  Orinda was born May 20, 1808 at Biddeford, Maine.

The Isaac Dearing who witnessed the deed and was perhaps also the Justice of the Peace was a brother to William Dearing, Jr.  Isaac married Clarissa Harper in 1825.  Clarissa was a sister to Eunice (Harper) Dearing, so this was a case of two brothers marrying two sisters.

Isaac Dearing died December 16, 1872, and Clarissa not far behind, on January 3, 1873.  They're also buried in the Deering Cemetery at Waterboro, Maine.

Cornelius Boothby had more than a business relationship with the Dearing family.  He married Margaret [or Margery] Dearing, a sister to William Dearing, Jr., and Isaac Dearing.  Cornelius was born November 18, 1777, son of Samuel and Margaret Boothby.  Cornelius may have been the Capt. Cornelius Boothby, who died on February 25, 1849, and whose birth year was estimated to be 1774.

According to the Wentworth Genealogy, English and American, Volume 1, Jeremiah Goodwin was born July 1, 1786 in Eliot, Maine, son of Daniel Goodwin and Sarah (Hobbs) Goodwin.  He was a paymaster in the War of 1812 and was later a postmaster at Alfred, Maine, and the York County Register of Deeds for 20 years.  He died July 31, 1857 at Great Falls, New Hampshire.

1903 Photograph of Etta M. Holloway at age 13; by Kozorek studio of New Bedford, Massachusetts


Photograph dated December 12, 1903 of a girl identified on the reverse as Etta M. Holloway at age 13 years, 6 months.  The photograph was taken by the Kozorek studio of 919 Acushnet Avenue, New Bedford, Massachusetts.


From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Etta Marion Holloway was born about June 1890 at New Bedford, Massachusetts, the daughter of Arod Beals Holloway and Marion Loubella (Cole) Holloway.  On April 23, 1913 at New Bedford, Massachusetts, Etta married Elmer Ricketson, son of Orion Ricketson and Annie Vella (Glover) Ricketson.  Elmer was born February 4, 1889 at New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Elmer was working as a bookkeeper and Etta as a clerk at the time of their marriage.  Elmer went on to become an accountant with the Internal Revenue Service.  They had a daughter Marion Wheeler Ricketson, born in 1917.

Elmer died in 1972; I'm not sure when Etta died.

Photograph of William Henry Holst of West New York, New Jersey; at age 11 Months


Photograph of a baby identified on the reverse as Willie Holst of 783 Bergenline Avenue, West New York, New Jersey, at age 11 months.  It appears that the photograph was purchased from the Deutsches Journal of New York, New York.


From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

William Henry Holst was born March 3, 1912 at West New York, New Jersey, the son of Charles Holst and Susan (Meehan) Holst.  By 1930, the family was living at Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Charles was working as the foreman in a printing operation.  By 1940 William was still living with his parents at Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was teaching in a private school.

William may have moved to the Manchester, New Hampshire area by 1942, as it was from there that he enlisted into the Army.  His enlistment record notes that he was of the occupation classification: Artists, sculptors, and teachers of art.

William was living at Stonington, Maine, when he died in 1995.  If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
