Berthel and Celia (Sikke) Finnestad
The first photo above is Ole and Mari Finnestad's son Berthel (or Bert) and wife Sikke (or Celia).
Bert was the first Finnestad to head out of Lee County, Illinois and moved to Saskatchewan, Canada in 1904, according to the history (see middle photo above).
Younger brother Rasmus and family eventually followed via a short stint in Iowa.
The bottom photo shows the home where Bert and family resided in Canada.
