Arthur Christofferson  June 1895  Graduating Photo
IF he was about 18 when graduating then he was born about 1877 or so.
I wonder if he is related to Charles from yesterdays photo?
Sometimes I hesitate to buy damaged photos but then I think if they have a name on the back a damaged photo is better than no photo.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
Arthur Christofferson Born Jan 14 1878 in Wisconsin and died March 2 1956 in Minnesota. His parents were Hans and Bertha. He had siblings Alvin, Charles, Harry and Julia. Arthur married Lulu Belle Fortune and they had at least three children Mary, Janet and John.  Arthur was an attorney.

Douglas Dec 17 83

Alec Nov 29 1889   91

Monte  Mar 6 85

The dates make no sense to me…IF the photo was taken in 1900, the boys would be 17, 11 and 15.  If it was taken in 1895 they would be 12, 6 and 10  which is much more believable.

Thanks for stopping by.
