This photo was found in an antique mall in Woodbridge, Prince William Co., VA. It was with a photo of "Miss June Vernon" b. 29 Sept 1922. I don't if these photo's belong together or not, but they were found together in the antique mall. There wasn't a dealer available to tell me anything about the photos.If this photo does belong with the photo of June Vernon then perhaps one of these men could be her father.This is a postcard type photo with no indication of where it was taken or studio mark.

I found two June's listed in SSDI that shared the same birthdate and they were, June M. Johnstone 29 Sep 1922 26 Mar 1990 Winchester, Clark, Kentucky
& June Shaffer 29 Sep 1922 Apr 1974 Denver, Adams, Colorado. Another photo of two men were with the photo of June. I don't know if they are related, but I also bought them in case they were. I have listed them under "Vernon" also. There is no indication on either photo of where it was taken. I listed Virginia because that is where they ended up.June could still be living. She would be almost 85 now.
This picture was in my Great Grandmother, Charlotte (McCormick)Pitts's scrap book, next to a photo of Mamie Dete Du who married Fred Smitdth (Charlotte Kirby's cousin)who was part French.The Kirby's were from Kirby Kurist, Yorkshire, England. Other places she could be from are Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia and Canada.

Inscription on back of photo reads "The only pic of the entire Nelson family" My grandmother, Lillian Carin Swanson was sent to live on this farm about 1920 when she was orphaned in New York City. Her parents,Charles and Hilda and two sisters,Ethel and Hilda died between 1918 and 1920 during the Spanish Flu epidemic. She only new the Nelson's as Ma & Pa Nelson. She lived there until about 1925. In researching tbis family, I have found them to be Ithal(Bergstrom) Nelson, her husband, Oke Nelson and the two younger men in the back are probably their sons, Sven & Steven.
This photo was in my grandmother,Lillian Swanson Schilling's album. She lived in New York City from 1915 until 1940's and then lived in Salisbury,Maryland.Associated surnames are,Asplund,Johanson,Ekvall,Tarnstrom & Rosin.
I've identified this photo as my great grandfather, Charles Swanson. This was taken at a TB Sanitarium in Yapavi County, AZ where he was sent to improve his health. Taken about 1920. He died December 1920 and his body was shipped back to NY to be buried. added 10/11/04)
I've identified this photo myself. When I found my great grandmother, Hilda (Lunden) Swanson in the 1910 census living at Ardsley on Hudson, I realized that is what the picture said, and that it was Hilda Swanson and her daughter's Grace Ethel & Hilda in 1910. Hilda's husband, Charles Swanson was a chauffer for Edwin Gould, son of Robber Baron, Jay Gould and Ardsley on Hudson was near to their Estate "Lyndhurst".
