Ellis Album, Photos 78 & 79 – Estella & Naomi Larsen


These beautiful young women are Estella & Naomi Larsen.  I’ve included both of their photos together because it seems likely that they are sisters.

Once again, I can’t find a connection between these girls and my family.  After some searching, I have found a possible family for these women.  Parents named Rasmus Oluf Larsen and Anna Jorgine Sorensen.  Rasmus and Anna had three daughters, two of whom were named Anna Estella and Florence Naomi.  I actually found them by searching Newspapers.com for “Estella Larsen Naomi” hoping for an obit hit which is exactly what I got.

Family of Estella & Naomi, if you see this, please help me identify Estella & Naomi and their family.



This photo comes from the thirty-fifth page of the album.  Here are pages thirty-four and thirty-five to give context for this photo:

  1. Definitely sisters. Did your great-grandmother take all these photos? Is it possible these were just her clients and not family members?

    1. I think so too! The great-grandma who created this album was not the photographer great-grandma. But good thinking! I’m wondering if she was just such an archivist at heart that she couldn’t toss such lovely photos that had maybe come from friends over the years. But, I don’t know? I’m hoping more will be identifed over time, but that, of course, requires me sharing them.

      I’m getting really close to the end of the album. This two-page spread has all the mystery photos and then I have four more 8x10s and that’s it!

    1. Thank you, Cathy, me too!! Well, if you thought is was the same person, maybe it’s not a stretch to assume they are sisters. 😉

  2. The resemblance between these two young women screams that they are definitely sisters!! I am so surprised that the photos are in the album without a family connection. I hope you are able to find a place for them!! Good luck.
