Full Circle 149

This Full Circle began when Iggy found a blog for this family!  I contacted the blogger and mailed the photo off.

Anna Huseby Photo Number 2299

I heard from Mark a relative:

"Anna Huseby was born 20 Jul 1870 in Winneshiek Co., the daughter of Arne Johansen Huseby and Johanna Margrete Johannesen. She married Anton Erickson 15 Dec 1896 at Big Canoe Lutheran Church in rural Winneshiek Co. Anton, the son of Jens and Ingeborg (Hanson) Erickson Ness, was born 8 May 1859 at Washington Prairie in Winneshiek Co. Anna and Anton lived in Decorah and later moved to North Dakota. They moved back to Decorah and then moved to Spokane, WA where they remained for the rest of their lives. Anton was 84 when he died at Spokane on 25 Oct 1943. Anna died at Medical Lake in Spokane County on 23 Jan 1946 at the age of 75. They were the parents of 4 boys: Jesse Arthur (1897-1970), George Irving (1900-1983), Arnold Milton (1907-1995), and Wilbert Alvin (1910-1992)."

Your readers might also like the picture of the whole family that I have attached. I was given permission to use it and I'm sure it it is fine if you use it also, though please give credit to Bill Waters and the IAGenWeb Project. The boys in the back are George and Jesse. I believe the ones in the front center are Wilbert and Arnold, though I am not 100% sure.
Thanks, Mark

Perhaps someone can translate.  I believe this photo may be related to the the two previous days photos.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from LarsI
Yes, it is Norwegian:

"Lille Per i fjor sommer. Han er i svigermors kjøkkenhave og spiser rips"

"Little Per last summer. He is in my mother-in-law's kitchen garden eating currants"
