A researcher in Norway sent this photo to The Messenger and it was forwarded to us from there. We believe the photo was taken in Webster County.
Teodor Helland is the fourth man from the right in the back row. It would be good if we could identify anyone else in the photo, or find out where the photo was taken.
The fourth man from the right in the back row is Teodor Helland. He was born in Sand in Suldal, Rogaland, Norway, in 1871. He emigrated to Webster County around 1889, but returned to Norway around 1895. The photo is supposed to be from Webster County. He died in 1956.
I have cropped each man’s photo separately. I kept the boys in one photo.
They are listed from the left. There are six men in the first row, so they are man1, man2, etc. The second row begins at the left with man7. Teodor Helland would be man12, but since we know who he is, I named the photo with his name.
The boys in back:
The March meeting of the Webster County Genealogical Society will be at 1 p.m. March 10 in Room 134 of the Fort Dodge Public Library. The public is welcome.
The meeting was postponed last week because of severe temperatures. That shouldn’t be a problem this Monday.
Due to forecasted severe cold for Monday, the monthly meeting of the Webster County Genealogical Society is rescheduled for March 10. It will still be at 1 p.m. in Room 134 of the Fort Dodge Public Library, 424 Central Ave., Fort Dodge.
