Unknown from Eustis, NE or Milbank,SD

I received the following mystery photograph this week. Look familiar to anyone?

Attached is a picture that I am trying to find out who the people are. They are either from Eustis, Nebraska, or Milbank, South Dakota.  Hope that someone can recognize them it is a great picture.

  1. the lady resemble my grandmother, Hazel Marie Varns. She married Elmer Wermuth and they lived in Omaha, Nebraska. She was born in Missouri Valley, IA and had 3 brothers that i know of: George, Frank and Ralph. I don’t believe she had any sisters, but it may be an aunt? or cousin? the Varns lived in Missouri Valley for at least 100 years as farmers.
    Let me know what you think. I could submit my picture (the only one i have taken about 1952)

  2. Something about this picture bothered me – why is he sitting in a chair (outside), while the woman is standing behind him?

    As I looked closer, I noticed his hands – his right arm (as you look at the picture) seems naturally relaxed, resting on his leg, his left hand appears to be fisted, and his leg seems to be a bit askew – which got me thinking – could he have had a stroke?

    This is just a thought – but may help to identify the people in the picture.

  3. To Caren – Most of my photos showing my great grandparents (c.1920-1940) have the husband sitting in a chair, with his wife standing behind him. This also echoes the wedding portraits I have from the turn of the 19th century.

  4. I talked to a couple that have lived in and around Eustis most of their life and now are my next door neighbors and they didn’t recognize the people in the picture. They could be wrong, but they didn’t think it was anyone they knew at Eustis. (We live about 25 miles from Eustis)

    Just thought I would let you know.

  5. I believe this is a picture of a father and daughter. I too think his right arm may not move like the other one. For a date I would think late 40’s or very early 50’s.
