Spotlighting photos from my extensive photo archive
This week it is-

James & Sybil (Hooser) Hooser

James & Sybil Hooser

Sybil was born outside of Winnebago, MN in 1882-- the first daughter (and 3rd of 10 children) of Charles Hooser & Jessie Maine.

The name Hooser is often spelled Hoosier as well. Some adapted one spelling or another--- while others switched back & forth. 

Sybil spent her earlier years in Southern Minnesota-- growing up around her Mother's family & her cousins, before the family relocated to what is now South Dakota. After a few years the family again relocated to Northern Minnesota.

As a young woman, Sybil was married to a distant cousin- James Theodore Hooser. They would live in the Park Rapids area, until moving to Canada for a few years.

By 1909, the family had returned to Park Rapids.

On July 21, 1914, Sybil passed away from complications of a heart ailment. She was only 32 years old.
