The photographer was G. G. Oyloe (1851 - 1927) of Ossian, IA. Oyloe whose full name was Gilbert G. was born in Norway about 1851 and immigrated to the United States before 1880 when he married Johanne Hannah Simonsen who was born in Iowa in 1856. They lived their entire lives in Ossian and Military Iowa, both located in Winneshiek County. They were the parents of three children, the last born in 1898, the same year Oyloe's wife died. Oyloe is reported to have to have worked as a photographer in the area from around 1880 to about 1910. Oyloe died in 1927 and is buried at Hillside Cemetery in Ossian. I want to date this photograph in the 1880's but I am a little unsure as the trailing vines on her headdress would point to a later date, so perhaps early 1890's.
