Flom Township Pioneers

This picture is quite interesting. Aaron and Arvid Swenson had a copy of it. We have had lots of help in trying to identify the people on the whole picture. This is just half of it. We were told that it was taken at the Wild Rice Parsonage. Rev. Opdahl liked to go fishing, when he caught lots of fish, he would invite some of the old pioneers over for a fish fry. We are not 100% sure on the names of some of the people but have tried our best to identify everyone.
