ah! you're right.
You are quite correct, it's not the same moon. Somehow it's even a little funnier to think that posing in front of a wooden moon was so popular that more than one fair did it! :)

As to the Ostby connection, yes, I am sure we are related. I am directly descended from the Reverend Paul Gjermundsen Ostby. I'd love to see any photos you have of the family, and I can share mine with you. Email is butalaaaaa (at) gmail (dot) com.

hello -
It's so inconsequential but I thought I'd share this with you. I saw a photo you posted on a memorial for Harry Ostby (memorial 40044122 here on Find-A-Grave). It is a group of young people standing around a cut-out of a crescent moon. I'm descended from an Ostby line in Minnesota that was related to some of this North Dakota group, though I haven't figured out yet if Harry and my relatives were related. However, I do have an interesting picture of my own, the second one for the listing I created for Bernhard Ostby (memorial 110517201 on Find-A-Grave). The same crescent moon!

I thought you'd find it a bit funny to see them all standing against the same backdrop, at different times. Wouldn't it be funny if they were at the same county fair, or carnival, or circus, getting their pictures taken within a few minutes of each other?
