Mary Kark was born March 13, 1875 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and was the youngest daughter of Christian and Anna Marie (Dose) Kark. This photo was taken by O. D. Welch in Aurora, Nebraska (date of photo unknown).
This site is dedicated to my grandaunt Selma Hopp who collected and took pictures most of her life. Selma was born on March 23, 1903 on my great grandparent’s farm in Otis Precinct, Hampton, Nebraska. She was my Grandmother’s youngest sister and the daughter of John and Louise (Kark) Hopp. Most of the pictures shown here are the results of her efforts and were taken of individuals who once lived or were related to folks living in Hamilton County, Nebraska.
While Aunt Selma knew who the people were in these photos, she left us with this puzzle to figure out. I have associated names where possible and would appreciate all help in identifying the nameless persons that appear here. Due to the volume of photos that she had, this blog will be updated periodically with new additions.
