These are my Great-grandparents and 10 of their 12 children. The oldest child died in infancy in Sweden and the next oldest, Erik Eld, is for some reason absent from this family photo!

 

My great grandparents are Maja and Karl Eld-Andersson of Bolstad, Sweden, then McIntyre, Pennsylvania, then Peale, Pennsylvania and finally, of Grassflat, PA! My Grandfather is Karl August Eld .
