Photo Details

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Elma SATHER and Mrs. SATHER which was taken at the Lindahl Studio in Tacoma, WA. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1890’s with Elma likely about 7-8 years old and Mrs. SATHER in her 40’s or 50’s. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Elma and her family:

Elma appears to have married twice, the first time was to R. J. BAKER on 3 Sept 1910 in Pierce County, WA and the second time to Thomas A. ROSS on 12 Nov 1917 in Seattle, WA. One of the witnesses at Elma’s first marriage was Mrs. Sina SATHER who I believe is her Mother.

Census records provide the following details:

1900 census of Tacoma, WA:

Lisa SETHAR, age 54, born Jun 1845, divorced, 1 child/1 living, born Norway, parents born Norway, to USA 1888, Doing Housework
Elma L. SETHAR, dau, age 9, born Apr 1891, born WA, parents born Norway

1930 census of Aberdeen, WA: - a Housekeeper in the home of Frank PEARSON

Elma L. SATHER, age 38, Divorced, married at age 19, born WA, parents born Norway, a Private Family Housekeeper

I’m hoping to locate someone from this SATHER Family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
