Wedin Family Genealogy Forum
Just read your message about your grandfather and Elof Wedin. I just talked to my mother about a painting she had hung on her wall for many years. She told me the story about how her father, Berrisford Fifield was friends with the artist who painted this picture. He actually stood up for my grandfather in his wedding. My mother recalls how they took a trip to Minneapolis and visited with Elof and his wife and child. She remembered the loft in their apartment or house where he did his painting. Anyway the painting she inherited from her father was an original oil painting Elof gave to them as a gift. I told my my mother I would research him on the internet. There are a few informative sites on this man. He seems to be very famous. I think the painting may have some value.
My mom did not know how they became aquainted. They lived in and around LeSueur, and St. Peter, MN
