I have an original Cabinet Card photograph of “Corniel Osland – he worked for Ole Benson”, and I’d like to get the photo back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Leland (LaSalle Co.) IL, and he looks to be about age 20.

I found Corniel Osland in the 1900 census of Leland (LaSalle Co.) IL, showing he was born Norway in June 1875 and immigrated in 1898. He lived in 1900 with Andrew A. Anderson and was single. By 1910, Corniel was age 34, a widower, living in Paw Paw (DeKalb Co.) IL, with his son, Hiram, age 5. In 1920 & 1930, he was Cornelius Osland, still living in Paw Paw, with wife Marie (whom he married about 1910), and children Hiram and Myrtle.
