Here is where my frustrations blow up! My goal today was to post some great picture of a historical general store from Rowland, Nevada, Mountain City, Nevada and Johnsville, Minnesota. Alas, my efforts have been road blocked!
I know that my Great Aunt Geneva Swanson Olson (1895-1981) moved to Rowland, Nevada to be a teacher and later married and was a postmaster and worked as a store keeper. I was able to find a record for her husband Chauncey Axel Olson (1892-1964) as the postmaster in Nevada appointed in 1930.
So, I switched gears and looked around for another general store that is closer to home in the hopes that I could find something on this store. As luck would have it, I did find tiny bits of information! I was disappointed that the pictures that I did find from the Blaine historical society did not have information about who is in the pictures or what the dates are. Here is what I do know about this store in my family which isn't very much: William Tigue (1881-1956) and Anna Swanson Tigue (1885-1963) Ran the Johnsville General Store in 1926. It was bought from John Augustson whom I also cannot find information about.
