I have an original 8”x10” photograph of “Peter Nyquist and family”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. On the back of the photo all the people are identified, including “Julia (Mrs. Carl Jacobson)” Census records show that Jacobsons lived in Minneapolis.

Photo was taken in Cokato (Wright Co.) MN, and was taken in approximately 1920, give or take a few years. Peter looks to be about age 65 and his wife about 60, and there are 7 adults and four children shown.

On the back of the photo are all the names of those in the photo, stating “This Mrs. Nyquist was Peter’s third wife (no name given); she was the older sister of Mrs. Larson, and aunt of Judge Earl, Stanley, Melvin and Audrey. The first Mrs. Nyquist, the mother of August and Marie, was the half sister of Mrs. Lewis Nyholm, and both were daughters of Mrs. Maria Satterquist, whose farm was adjacent to and just north of the Crow River Free Church”.

The names on the photo are: “Ella (Mrs. Ernest Johnson); P. August; Hannah (the first Mrs. Victor Haglund); David, Julia (Mrs. Carl Jacobson); Marie; John Samuel (attorney in Milaca); Linnea (Mrs. Victor Lundeen); Rudolph; Russell; Signe; and Mrs. And Mrs. Peter Nyquist”.

In the 1900 census for Collinwood (Meeker Co.) MN, I found Peter Nyquist (Dec 1847); Maria, wife (Jul 1867 – who had 6 children and 6 living); son August (Oct 1875 – age 24); Hanna U. (Mar 1886); Sam J. (Dec 1888); Julia O. (Aug 1890); David N. (May 1892); Ella A. (Jan 1895); and Signe C. (May 1898). In the 1910 census in same location, Peter and Maria had been married 24 years (abt 1886), and they had added to their family beyond the last six children above – three more: Linnea (9 in 1910); Rudolph (7 in 1910) and Russell (3 in 1910).

Get back to me at if you are related to the family of Peter Nyquist of Meeker Co., MN.
