Rescued Photos RAMSDELL Surname Emmet Co. MI

As a hobby I rescue old photos that have identification on them and then attempt to find family who might want them. I only ask to be reimbursed my expenses.

I have two that I rescued and they are identified as Dr. Ramsdell and Luman Ramsdell. After a little bit of research I found the doctor to be Dr. Oscar Luman Ramsdell son of Luman Ramsdell of NY. His son is Luman C. Ramsdell who died about 1929.

One photo is of Dr. Ramsdell and Luman. The other photo is of Luman when he is in his teens or early 20's.

Dr. Ramsdell died in Grand Rapids. He practiced homeopathic medicine in Petoskey, MI.

Luman was a friend of Ernest Hemingway. I found an image on line of Hemingway posing with guests at his wedding that was held in Petoskey and Luman was the man furthest to the right of the image. I do not have this photo. It is among papers belonging to Hemingway, held in Washington DC.

If you are family and would like to obtain these two photos please contact me at:
