This could be Charles or Charley Johnson with a part of his family. Charles or his Swedish name was Carl August Johansson emigrated to America in 1884. He got married and I know that they got 9 children and lived in Minnesota. In several census I have find a family Johnson and they lived in Lake Valley,Traverse,Minnesota.


I have been told that the picture is taken by John H.Paramore. He had studio in Hawarden,Siox County or Akron,Plymoth County.So, this family probely lived in one of those places.

Charlie and Anna Johnson

Greetings from Great Grand daughter of Charlie Johnson. The picture above I do not recognize, but the other one I do. Please contact me with the name of Great Grandpa in the subject line

Johnson family?

Back in the days many people from sweden send pictures to america. This could be Charles family in sweden and that they sent him a picture and then he had it framed in Iowa. I don´t know why it is written Iowa because Charles was living in Minnesota.
The guess is this: from left back row- Johan alfred(brother to charles)Jenny,Alma and Emma Johnson(also sister to charles) sitting from left Charles mother Hedda Svensdotter and his father Johannes Anderson.
