I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as that of Violet PALSGROVE which was taken at a studio in Carson City, NV. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with Violet about 2 years old at the time it was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Violet and her family: Martha Violet PALSGROVE was b. 30 Dec 1907 in Nevada to parents John B. PALSGROVE (b. 1861) and Mary Emma MOORE (b. 1887). Violet married Harry BENNETTS (1895-1981) and together they had two children. Violet died 28 May 2001 in Silver City, NV. Census records provide the following details: 1920 census of Reno, NV: John PALSGROVE, age 59, born PA, parents born PA, a Carpenter M. Emma PALSGROVE, wife, age 33, born KS, parents born NC/IA, a Housewife Violet PALSGROVE, dau, age 12, born NV 1930 census of Reno, NV: John B. PALSGROVE, age 69, married at age 46, born PA, parents born PA, a General Building Contractor Mary E. PALSGROVE, wife, age 43, married at age 19, born KS, parents born NC/IA Violet M. PALSGROVE, dau, age 22, born NV, a Public School Teacher I’m hoping to return the photograph to family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Billie BOTHWICK of Ward, Nevada. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1870’s or 1880’s with Billie appearing to be in his 20’s at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following in census records: 1880 census of Ward, NV: William BORTHWICK, age 34, a Farmer, born Scotland, parents born Scotland Austin GAY, helper, age 24, a Herder, born MA, parents born MA I’m hoping to locate someone from this BOTHWICK or BORTHWICK Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of his family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

This is a photo of a Native American's home in Virginia City, Nevada during the Influenza epidemic. It reads: Another type of dwelling in Virginia City. In this shack I found four people lying on the dirt floor wrapped in rags apparently all suffering from influenza. I was told they had refused medicine from the white doctor and Dick Mauwee, a Paiute enrolled at Pyramid Lake Reservation, was the doctor. The small four-light window admitted the only light. It was nailed tight, the only door was kept shut tight and no ventilation was attempted or was possible. The stench which greeted us when we entered was most horrible and could be endured but a short time. An Indian had just been taken from this structure for burial. The father of the family was the Indian alluded on another page as a "walking case".
