Paste CIOH text.

Locate letter from Sigurdur Halldor to Kjartan. Not found in digital files.

Roy has seen Halldor's named spelled with one or two L's. Halldor was named after Halldor Briem, the husband of Susie, daughter of William Stewart Taylor and adopted daughter of John Taylor the Canadian Agent for the Icelander in New Iceland.
Update, his gravestone shows he was Sigurdur Halldor Christopherson.

Thanks to Sig and then Hank Christopherson saving the old photos, we have quite a few photos of Halldor.

Hanging Portrait
During our August trip to Manitoba, the family had
4 portraits. There was no way to get a
photo without reflections, so retouched this.
The other portrait hanging next to this
is of his grandmother
.
The portraits are heavily airbrushed backgrounds
and painted over photographs.
