Elsie Palm, the young girl featured in my first photo (left), was born October 1898 in Minnesota to August and Amelia Palm. August immigrated to the US in 1888 from Sweden and married Amelia in 1896. In the 1900 US census, Elsie is living with her parents and Uncle Carl in Worthington, Nobles County, MN. Sometime after, her family moved to Fergus Falls in Otter Tail County, MN and appear in the 1910 census for that location. By this time, Elsie has two sisters, Mabel (b. 1903) and Verna (b. 1908).
Ten years later in the 1920 census, I found an Elsie Palm, with matching information, living in as a roomer in Duluth, MN. Elsie is still living in Duluth in 1930, working as a School Teacher there. The inscription on the back of the photo simply reads, "Elsie Palm" and "daughter of August & Amelia." The photo would have been taken around 1905, give or take.
