Anna Nelson Jacobson's Old Photo Album
Once, while exploring the particularly crowded closet in my bedroom, I came across an old velvet covered photo album that had once belonged to my grandmother Anna Nelson Jacobson. It was originally her parents' album. In it I found a number of photos with no names indicated on them. I then undertook the task of identifying them. My conclusions (and assumptions) follow:

Here is what the old
album looks like.

This is the Nels K. and Henriette Nelson Family. The oldest girl is their niece Stella.

This is Ane Marie Simonsdatter (Nels K. & Abelone's mother) with her grandson Knud Christian Nielsen.

This is Nels K. Nelson's sister, Abelone Simonsen.

This is Abelone Simonsen with her husband, Hans Nielsen and their sons Knud Christian and Johannes.

This is Knud Christian and Johannes Nielsen, sons of Hans & Abelone Simonsen Nielsen.

This is Nels K. Nelson.

This is very likely Nels K. Nelson.

This is Maren Christiane Nielsen and her husband Gilbert Thompson. She is Henriette Nielsen's sister.

This is Edmund Hans Jacobson. My grandfather.

I have no idea who this is.

I have no idea who this is.

This is my grandmother, Anna Sophie Knusine Nelson.

I have no idea who this is.

I have no idea who this is.

These are the Henry Meyer kids. The Meyers farmed on section 9 of Blooming Prairie Township.

This the Rev. Lang family. He served Brorson Lutheran Church from 1897-1902.

I have no idea who this is.

I am fairly certain that this is Simon Hartvig Hansen. He was an eccentric old Danish neighbor.

Likely again, Simon Hartvig Hansen.
