Some of the photos in their large format album appear to document their visit in 1940
On page 46 of the large format album, begun in 1929, is this photo of a Sioux Tepee, with Edna in a dress and hat among the 1940 photos.
On the same page, is Noah Elwood Weaver with a bark covered structure, perhaps ash bark, as this may be in Wisconsin on their way here. I know the Ho-Chunk Nation, Winnebago ,has had displays of American Indian lore for many years. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ho-Chunk
Post Card, ca 1940, Mayo Clinic at night.
Here is a photo of the Mayo Clinic in 1940, in downtown Rochester, where they stopped along the way. P 47 In the letters from Noah Elwood to his doctor son, they had considered a second opinion with a Mayo Clinic Doctor. Wonder if that was part of the stop here. I have found nothing written in that regard.
From Rememberings, p 41 by Margaret Weaver, "The first of July 1939, we moved into a small house at 520 Tatepaha Boulevard (See pictures #5 & 6, . 135.), a bungalow with a porch across the front, a very small living room, a large dining room with a wonderful view of sunsets across a golf course, a kitchen, one bedroom, and a small room next to the living room where we placed the second-hand piano which we had bought in Columbus. The Columbus icebox had been replaced by an automatic refrigerator, but we needed a stove, purchasing a Tappan gas range "on time" from Donaldsons Department Store in Minneapolis, paying two and a half dollars a month. We were excited when the moving van arrived from Columbus with our belongings. Our
furniture fit in, though the dimensions of the linen curtains had to be adjusted.
Being very friendly to us newcomers, our neighbor, Claude Hunt, publisher of the Faribault Daily News, gave us a handsome big walleye that he had caught. Knowing absolutely nothing about cleaning and preparing fish, we invited the Fosters for dinner, preceded by John's fish cleaning and Bern's assistance in cooking."
By 1941, the three Weavers, Paul H "Pete", Margaret "Peg" and their new son, Jim, Jimmy, James Cowles Weaver, had moved into this stone home at 201 4th Ave S, on the same block as the last home.
Here is Peg on the right with toddler Jim AKA James C Weaver, with unnamed neighbors on the front of the home at 201 4th Ave S, Faribault.
