THREE PRECIOUS KIDS IN TEKAMAH, NEBRASKA

by bmarshphd

This cabinet card features three precious little children wearing adorable outfits. The child in the center of the image is holding a rake and wearing a large bow tie and a straw hat. The two girls are flanking the little boy in the middle and each girl is holding their hat. There is a basket of flowers on the floor in front of the trio of children. The photographer of this image is the Mathison studio in Tekamah, Nebraska. Ingbert L. Mathison (1868-1935) was born in Denmark in 1868. He came to America with his parents at the age of 2. He grew up in Iowa and came to Tekamah, Nebraska in 1891. He became a photographer and later added furniture sales to his business. The 1900 US census reveals that Mathison was married to Grace Theodoria Christy (1870-1902) and the couple had four children between the ages of 3 and 9. Two years after this census, Grace died, leaving Ingbert with four young children. Ingbert soon got remarried. His new bride was Mary Etta Slaughter (1873-1939). The Mathison family then moved to a community outside of Denver, Colorado. Ingbert worked as a farmer, and later, a grocer, in Colorado. He died in a Denver hospital in 1935 at the age of 67. The cause of death was hemorrhages of the stomach.
