Tuesday Twigs: The Johnson Girls

Each Tuesday, I will post a tidbit from my family tree – I hope you enjoy!

I love this picture!  These cuties are my great aunts – Irene Margaret, Evelyn Maude, Ardis Helen, and Verna Lucille.  The picture was taken around 1910 in Minneapolis where their Norwegian immigrant family lived (on 16th avenue) – probably in the Spring as by the 1910 census they had moved to a farm in Mahnomen County.  Maybe an Easter portrait as the two youngest are holding bunnies!

I would love to find those gold lockets or at least to know that they are kept and preserved by our family.  After the Johnsons moved to the farm, four more children (including my grandmother) were born, and the rest is history!
