Anyone know anything about a photographer name of Booen who would have been around Miles City in the early 1920's?

I couldn't find a Booen in 1920 or 1930 Montana census in Miles City.

Earlier this month I saw a large Booen photograph offered on EBay. It was some sort of Farm Bureau special trip with a large group of people from Indiana and Minnesota posed in front of a train in Miles City. I had assumed the photographer was from Austin, Minnesota Booen Photography and had traveled with the group. I have seen Booen Photography portraits taken in the Midwest on sites like Dead Fred's.

The JO Booen referred to in the Kitty Booen story has at least one panorama photo in the Library of Congress.

What type of info are you looking for? I have some basic geneological info on James O Booen as his father & my great-grandfather were first cousins.

He had a panoramic camera and took lots of those wonderful photos in the 1920's. I gave my box of his photos, which included family photos, to his grandson about ten years ago. He worked in adjacent states like the Dakotas as well. Many of his panoramics are on display at the Ranger Riders Museum but he isn't "collected" the way Huffmans or Barthelmess are.

My maiden was "Booen". My uncle's name was Sherman. You can google his name and you'll find a lot of information. He passed away about a year ago at the age of 98. He was my favorite uncle. He wrote books and did a lot of genealogy. He gave me his book to make copies of and had flyers in the book. One of the flyers, he asked me to keep, mentioned J.O.Booen.

Is there anything I can help you with?

I have panoramic Booen photograph of a ranch located at the old Sitting Bull Springs in Ekalaka. Want more information about the area. Thanks.

Maybe someone at the Carter County Museum in Ekalaka can help you.
Email ccmuseum@midrivers.com
phone 406/775-6886

The museum has published county family history books.

I did a place search for Sitting Bull Springs and could only find one in New Mexico.

You may already know that Ekalaka was named for Ijkalaka which is Sioux for swift one. She was a great niece or something similar of Sitting Bull's and also a niece of Red Cloud's. She was married to one of first settlers in that area David Russell.

The Baker, MT radio station KFLN 960 AM posted a photo on their facebook page yesterday with c Baker Mont Booen on it and was wondering if anyone knows what year it was from. It looks like a circus parade through town circa early 1900s. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone knew when it was taken? Thank you in advance. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?...35052&type=3&theater
