The women to the the left is Hulda Christina Johnson born in Sweden, then her sister Anna Maria Johnson born in sweden, both born Hallquist and married a Johnson.The man is their brother Carl John HAllquist or maybe Charles John Hallquist. I am looking for the man and his family. Charles was born Mars 17 1868 in Hammarö, Värmland, Sweden.His sister Anna had a daughter who lived in Moose Jaw so I think the siblings was there together and they take the opportunity and take a picture. Sister Hulda and sister Anna lived in Wheaton, Traverse County, Minnesota and the brother lived there for a while too but I think Charles emigrated to Canada. Possible wife could be a Minnie Hallquist but I am not sure of that.
