Would like to obtain the obit for WILLIAM CHARLES BECKER, who died 16 Apr 1944, Hancock, Stevens, MN.
I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ole, Gertrude, and Lester SLINDEN which
was taken at the Anderson Studio in Morris, Minnesota. The photograph was
likely taken in the early 1900's with the children ranging in age from
infant to about 5 years, Gertrude being the baby, then Lester, and Ole the
oldest of the three. The surname is written with a "?" noted after so I'm
not sure if this means the spelling of the name is in question or the name
I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that this beautiful old
photograph can be returned to the family. If you are a member of this
family, or know someone who might be, please contact me.
