Hello, Bob King here.
I have a service that attempts to return ancestors photos to those who are researching them. Recently, I found a Basford and associated families’ Photo Album from Austin & Winona, Minnesota.
This large red album (11”x8.5”) has only the “Al” left on the cover but the photos are in great shape.
There are 30 studio portraits. The names include:
Mr. R. B. Basford in a photograph from Winona, Minnesota
Helen Basford in a photograph from Austin, Minnesota
Harry Basford at 2 years old in a photograph from Austin, Minnesota
Helen Basford at 5 months old in a photograph from Austin, Minnesota
Addie Cook in a photograph from Winona, Minnesota
Nel White Cook with her two girls in a photograph from Winona, Minnesota
Carl Stone in a photograph from Minneapolis, Minnesota
A stylish man in a photo from Kansas City, Missouri and on the back it says: John Henry Roberson 1873 but then someone tried to black it out.
A four generation photo from St. Paul, Minnesota
Then a picture of Mr. Merchant and a picture of Mrs. Merchant both in photographs from Winona, Minnesota
Then a picture labeled cousin Albert Donaldson
Ms Kit Carson Ellis from Austin, Minnesota in a photograph from Winona, Minnesota
Then a picture of Mr. Soule and a picture of Mrs. Soule, both in photographs from St. Paul, Minnesota
Guy McFarlin in a photograph from Winona, Minnesota

Minnie W. Barnes Dec. 25, 1881 in a photograph taken in Chicago, Illinois

And finally Seta Foster
And photos from Austin, Armach & Rochester, Minnesota, New York, New York, Kansas City, Missouri and Cedar Rapids, Iowa
