Earl & Charles Ricker, about 1910
Earl is 6-10 years old in the above photo. Inside the building is a woman and a man, there is a red cross sign in the doorway. I would be interested to know if there was an epademic going on about this time, or if this was the sanitarium? Charles had been in and out of the Puposky Sanitarium from time to time and died there from TB in 1954.
Earl Ricker married Pearl Broadbent (1906-2007), they raised their children in Arago and Park Rapids. See the Broadbent Family page for more information on Pearl:
About my dad Ralph Kirsch how he met Doris Ricker. when he was out of the service, he thought of a good opportunity for his parents to have a consistant income. he had bought this land and home on somewhat Potato lake. the home is still there and the cabins. it is some kind of outlet from the lake. My mother showed it to me about 8 years ago. its by a small bridge on a maine road. and you can see the cabins which are painted white. the home is across a dirt road and it was yellow I think one story. My dad was a bit dissapointed after he married, His parents sold the home and cabins and the Kirsch family moved to Park Rapids in town. Cordelia, which was my dads sister had went out with Gene Hanson who was Leon Ricker's brother-in-law, but then Cordelia was sent to a convent school of some sort, then she went to Rochester MN and became a nurse. She had married William Lerman and she now lives in West Concord, MN which is close to Roochester. Cordelia is still living there. Cordelia is in the Park Rapids year books as well as Doris Ricker- her sister-in-law.
