Notes (added by the Allamakee co. coordinator) Hulda (Anderson) Larson was wife of Hans Larson; Hilma Cornelia (Larson) Christianson was wife of Andrew Christianson and Anaruth 'Heloise' Bechtel was wife of Karl Bechtel. Looking closely at the photo, there is a picture hanging on the wall behind Mrs. Anderson that is only partially visible, but appears to be an old portrait of a man & woman. Should a researcher of this family just happen to have this photo in their collection, and would like to share it, please contact the Allamakee co. coordinator.
