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 uncle 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.
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.

This is a picture of my great aunt Toni, Antonia Teichgraeber. Her sister Leona was my grandmother. She did not have a brother named Emil; Theodore and Emma only had two daughters, but Theodore had a brother named Emil.ReplyDelete
Quite a surprise... especially how much I look like her.
Thanks for that clarification! Glad that you happened by to see your great aunt! As I recall, these photos came from an antique shop near Acadia National Park, perhaps from someone who retired to the area.Delete
Antonia Teichgraeber was my grandmother! My mother, Leona Hagstrom, was the oldest daughter. My mother married Carl Chappell and I am Carol Ann Chappell b 1945 in Jefferson City, MO. I am now living in VA Beach married with numerous grandchildren, Carol Jordan. small world. I would love to talk with you about how the name of Leona has been carried down in our family.Delete
Sorry to be late in seeing your comment, Carol. Glad that you happened upon this post! In my family, from the 1700s to 1900s, the name Isabella was passed down from the original immigrant Isabella from Scotland to Philadelphia to Nova Scotia (or perhaps she had also received the name from a predecessor). It's nice - though frequently confusing!ReplyDelete
