RE: Ericksons
Our Carl Gustaf Ericsson ERICKSON's father is Erik Ersson 1806-1888, and his mother is Maja Stine or Maria Christina Larsdotter, 1805-1883. I have done nothing with the Swedish records. This information was put in years ago in a database that anyone can access. If you want to check what is there, just go to FamilySearch.org.
Good luck with your research. ~Erlean

RE: Ericksons
No, our Ericksons are descendants of Carl 1842-1923 & Beata 1844-1921 (Persdotter) Carlsson (Julita, Södermanland, Sweden)- surname changed to Erickson after they immigrated. I have a hard time with the names from Sweden, but know someone who is working the Swedish records to make them more accurate.

RE: painting
Yes, the painting I have shows the rocks in the foreground exactly like the one on-line - I did a double-take when I saw it. My dad must have remembered the year wrong - he was only nine at the time. An exciting trip for both families!

No idea of the price. I sent the gallery an updated bio, they thanked me but no additional info.

My grandmother is listed in the Who's Who of Canadian Women Artists and had one work displayed at the Montreal Exposition. Her style was also oils, but realistic rather than impressionistic. Three from the trip to Rockport, one by her teacher, lots of Canadian landscapes - farmhouse in the snow, a waterwheel.

Out of 20 I only have one that I saw her paint when I was nine - a begonia blossom from our backyard in a glass of water on our kitchen table.

Didn't know the building was torn down. My brother saw it some years ago.

RE: Delle Miller painting
Just found one of the paintings from that 1922 trip listed on-line, already sold. What a surprise.

RE: Delle Miller painting
Glad you found her memorial. My grandmother often spoke of her cousin Delle. The summer of 1922 both families travelled to Rockport, Massachusetts, and the two Delles painted the iconic "Motif No.1," a red shanty at the end of a dock.

Since there were no traffic lights or signs, my dad said the AAA Bluebook directions were hilarious - "Pass a horse-trough on your right, take the next left."

Our painting is also impressionistic, of a seashore with mountains in the background. After her death the students at Paseo turned the 1933 yearbook into her memorial.
