I have an original 6”x9” studio photograph of “Ethel Johnson graduation – May 13, 1913” which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Joliet (Will Co.) IL and she looks to be about 16. Maiden name was Carlson.

I found Ethel Johnson in 1930 census for Joliet (Will Co.) IL, showing she was age 32 and wife of Claus E. Johnson was 51. Cook Co. Marriage Records show that Claus E. Johnson and Ethel E. Carlson were married in Chicago on 7 Jan 1920, and he was at that time 40 while she was age 23. In 1930, they had a son, Wayne L. Johnson, age 2-1/2. SSDI for Ethel E. Johnson shows she was born 5 Feb 1898. My research on Wayne L. Johnson shows he was born in Joliet, IL and died in Roswell, NM.

Get back to me at if you are related to Ethel E. Carlson Johnson.
