I promised you pictures, right?

When our great aunt, Sr Laura, was asked to go set up a mission near Onamia, Minnesota, she had to start from scratch. This photo was found (by Larry) on a site called MINNESOTA REFLECTIONS.

The man standing between Sr Laura and the horse looks familiar, doesn't he?

Who do YOU think he is?

  1. Ok, I'll tell you:
    I think it's Uncle Henry. He was Sr Lauras godson, and I know he helped build the Little Flower Mission. Besides, he stood that way, right?
