Betty Josephson wrote on Facebook, “After reading about the delay in fishing season at Silver Lake, I decided to post this picture of my Grandfather, Axel Berg. He homesteaded at Silver Lake, circa 1910, and rented out boats for many years in addition to farming.
Others chimed in . . .
Sally McKay: I remember him well. He would let you and me have a boat but not during the busy season.
Karen Loden Leamer: He would be my great grandfather. He was a handsome guy.
