Some time ago, Yvonne sent in this group of photos -- the pictures of the children are just SPECTACULAR!!! Yvonne's grandmother was Myrtle CURTIS who married William GJERMUNDSON and they lived in Morris Twp., Shawano County.  If you know any additional info, please contact email us so we can update the page!  And Yvonne, thanks for the pictures!!

If you CLICK on the photos, you can see the larger pictures that will make identifying them easier.

And if you have unidentified photos or old photos you would just like to share with other researchers, send them to me at and we'll make a page for them.

Yvonne noted that the only mark on this photo is A. F. Andrews, Oshkosh photographer.  This could be the family CURTIS or GJERMUNDSON.

SUCCESS!  Audrey Christensen Nelson, Tigerton, Wis. has identified this photo: Jonathan Waite Curtis, who married Lydia Jane Lake in 1852.  They had three children, Henry Adelbert (my great-grandfather), Myrtle May (Yvonne's grandmother) and Clinton D. Curtis.

Postcard 9/1930 TIGERTON GATHERING -- Uncle Claud GJERMUNDSON is in the back row 4th from the left.

Yvonne thinks that the middle lady is her grandmother, Myrtle GJERMUNDSON nee CURTIS.

SUCCESS!  Audrey Christensen Nelson, Tigerton, Wis. has identified this photo: Yvonne is correct in the assumption it is her grandmother, Myrtle Curtis Gjermundson, in the middle.  Her brother, Henry Adelbert Curtis is on the right and his wife (my great-grandmother) Eoline Calhoun Curtis.


This GORGEOUS photo with the two children was taken by C. A. Spicer with studios in Clintonville and Wittenberg.  Just a wonderful photo just waiting for someone to identify the children!  All these pictures were found in a family collection and only the above one mentioned a name.  If you have any ideas on their identities, please let us know!

"I was looking through the photos you have on the Shawano Co. Genweb site with my friend (Wiladean Gjermundson Young) who is from that county & she informs me that the photo of the little boy & girl on the Curtis -Gjermundson page are her father, Truman Jay Gjermundson (b. 1899) and his sister Irma Gjermundson Klaves (1891).  They are the children of George  & Sophia Johson Gjermundson.  If we can be of any further assistance, please contact me.
Thanks you,
Suzanne Long"

SUCCESS!  Audrey Christensen Nelson, Tigerton, Wis. has identified this photo:
The photo of the six children are from the family of Ray and Grace (Buck) Curtis.  Ray is the son of H. A. and Eoline Curtis, along with a brother Don and sisters, Maude Curtis Fink and Roberta Curtis Christensen (my grandmother).
I believe the children to be the first of 13 children born to Ray and Grace; namely, Muriel, Duane (Wayne), Clifford, Kenneth, Beatrice and Laverne.
