Mystery Photo- Estey Family- Mason City, Iowa

I forget now, just how I came to rescue this nice little portrait... it comes from a Mason City, Iowa photographer.



On the back side, someone took the time identify the 3 children and list their Father & Grandfather--
"Arthur E. Estey
Sylvia A. Estey
Harold W. Estey
Children of C.L. Estey
Son of Colin J. Estey"



A tiny bit of quick research show that Arthur Estey was born about 1898, Sylvia in 1902 and Harold 1910. They were the children of Clarence Luther "C.L." Estey & Carrie Brown. C.L. Estey was the son of Colin J. Estey & Henrietta Nelson. They families lived in Minnesota & Iowa at various points.

Hopefully someone out there is connected to this family & can claim this nice family portrait from the 1910's

  2. I think this may be the family of my Great Great Grandmother Ada Henrietta Estey. I know that her parents were Colin and Henrietta Nelson DeForce Estey. I suppose this would have been her brother's family. I think it's wonderful that you rescued it and shared it. I agree with the post above, share it so all family members can enjoy it. Thanks again!
