    When they were married in about 1908, George was about 23 and Caroline about 22.

    The original was mounted on on tan and grey matting board by Halmrast Studio, 1433 E. Franklin, Minneapolis. On the back Cora wrote in ballpoint pen "My Cousin" after an earlier notation, not written by Cora, written in fountain pen, "To. Auntie From George and Caroline." Thus, the original must have been given to Anna Bowe Anderson and Cora ended up with it after Anna died.

    A Hendrickson gathering. If that's Arthur to the right of Martha then this picture was taken in the summer of 1909. The leaning guy second from the right in the back is George Hendrickson. The woman on George's right is Caroline Ekum.

    On one version of the picture, which had been addressed to Claus Bowe in Viroqua, Martha Bowe Hendrickson had written in the margin, "This is at Wildwood above St. Paul. We are by our shanty where we cooked our coffee."  In the message part of the card, Martha had written: "Dear father, suppose you know us here  the girl next to Carolina is her cousin Christine Eckum. Charlie is by Mrs. Anderson  I am with Mr. Anderson just for fun   from your daughter"  (Spelling and punctuation are as written.)

    Christine Ekum, if she's Caroline's cousin, is most likely one of Mons Ekum's daughters. She may be the woman known as "Stina" who later - perhaps shortly after this picture was taken - married Peter Helgeson of Chippewa County.

    Cora's copy is also a postcard addressed to Cora Anderson, Viroqua Wis., Route 3, box 22. The following simple handwriting, all in pencil, has this message: "Dear Cora I do not know if I owe you or not I have forgotten but please write me soon your Aunite Martha." The postcard was postmarked from Minneapolis at Bloomington Station on October 9th (no year) at 3:30 PM with a green one-cent stamp.
