Martin Carlson Family – 1909

This early photograph shows Martin Carlson at his Mount Vernon farm a couple years before he moved to Alder.

Carl Linden says, “Left to right — Martin’s wife, Elsa, holding Margaret, Helen, Ruth, Einar, David and the man is unknown to me, probably a hired hand for the haying. Three more girls were born after that…in Eatonville: Elsie (1911), Esther  (1914) and Alice (1917).

    Hallo.
    I ‘m a German teacher. For a text in a music book for about folk music I would rather like to use this lovely photo of the Carlson Family 1908. Could you send me a permission or a contact to ask for it.
    Thank you very much.
    Best wishes

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for the email. Carl Linden owns the photo, I just have the authority to put it on the website. However, you could contact him by email at Carllinden@comcast.net. I’m sure he’ll probably be flattered by the request. 🙂
