Myrtle Bentson, b.1889, dau of Erich/Hannah, of Dunn & Eau Claire Counties, WI
I have an original postcard photograph of “Myrtle Bentson - 1912”, who is with two unidentified boys. Myrtle looks about age 20 while the boys are about 10 and 18. I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Elroy (Juneau Co.) WI, and my research shows the boys were probably her nephews Arthur Bentson and Paul Bentson.
I found Myrtle with her parents Erich and Hannah Bentson in the 1900 Dunn Co., WI census, showing her birth in Feb 1889. By 1910 in Eau Claire Co., WI, Hanna was a widow living with her children. In 1908 & 1910 city directories for Eau Claire, WI, Myrtle Bentson is shown as a teacher. 1910 census shows Arthur Bentson, age 18, and Paul Bentson, age 9, living in Juneau Co. with Severson family.
