The lady on the left in the back row is Annie Edith Larter Johnson, b. 1893 in Kittson County, d. 1926 in Minneapolis MN, and was a teacher at the school. The man to her left in in coat and tie is her husband, Peter Johnson, b. unk., d. 1930 in Freeport TX. Peter and Annie were married in 1916. They had two children, Freeman and Grace Johnson. The children were subsequently raised by George and Mary Larter Smolak who lived in Lancaster MN. This is a family photo and none of the others in the picture are identified. According to Minnesota Place Names, a book published by the Minnesota Historical Society, Siggestad was a farmers post office, 1902-17, 12 miles northeast of Hallock in Hill Township; Ole Peterson, its postmaster, was a jeweler and watch repairer.
