I've "rescued" a group of photographs all of A. Albert ANDERBERG. The first
is one of him taken at the Bridgman Studio in Alcester, South Dakota. The
photograph appears to have been taken in the 1890's with Albert likely in
his 20's at the time. The second photograph was taken at the Rugg Studio in
Sioux City, IA probably in the 1890's or early 1900's with Albert appearing
to be in his 30's at that time.
The third photograph is of him with a young man. This photograph has not
studio name or location indicated, however, I'd guess that it was taken in
the early 1900's and that Albert was probably in his 30's or 40's at the
time and the young man with him was probably in his early teens. The final
photograph has no studio name indicated on the photograph, however, in
addition to his name someone has written Alcester, SD on the back as well.
This photograph was probably taken in the 1890's with Albert likely in his
In 1910 I find him living in Woodbury, IA with a family as follows:
Albert A. ANDERBERG, age 40, married 6 years (1st time), born IA, parents
born Sweden, a Grocery Store Manager
Eimil ANDERBERG, wife, age 46, married 6 years (2nd time), born WI, parents
Walter OEKEY, step-son, age 20, born IA, parents born IL/WI
Kathered ANGERBERG, dau, age 10 months, born IA, parents born IA/WI
In 1920 I find the family without Albert living in Sioux City, IA with
records providing the following information:
Walter H. OEKAY, age 29, born IA, parents born IL/WI, an Electrician
Emma ANDERBERG, Mother, age 57, a widow, born WI, parents born Wales
Louise C. ANDERBERG, sister, age 10, born IA, parents born IA/WI
I'm hoping to locate someone from his family so that this wonderful old
group of photographs can be returned to their rightful place with family.
If you are a member of this family, or know someone who might be, please
Your are correct- I don't think they called it German Lutheran, but would
anyone know what Lutheran church was mostly German back then?. eg. present
day Wisconsin or Missouri synod?
I searched the vital records in Iowa and SD without luck.
