I've "rescued" an old photograph of Carl and Flora HOFSTEAD and their daughter Hellen which was taken at the Hayes Studio in Portland, OR. The photograph of the couple appears to have been taken in the 1890's with Flora appearing to be in her 20's and Carl in his 30's. The photograph of their daughter has been glued to the front of this photograph and appears to have been taken in the 1890's or early 1900's when she was about 4 years old. A note on the back of the photograph indicates that they are all dead. I believe that Flora's husband Carl died and she remarried Alexander BEATON in Oregon. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this couple: Flora was b. 1873 in Kansas and married twice, first to Carl HOFSTEAD and after his death she married Alexander BEATON (1864-1943) and she died in 1939 and is buried in the Lincoln Memorial Park Cemetery in Portland, OR. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Clark Co., WA: - boarding in the home of Thomas and Juliette STRUNK Flora HALFSTEAD, age 24, born Mar 1875, married 10 years, 1 child/1 living, born NE, parents born MI/IN Helen HALFSTEAD, age 5, born Feb 1895, born OR, parents born NE 1910 census of Abernathy, OR: Alexander BEATON, age 45, married 4 years, born Scotland, parents born Scotland, to USA 1889, a Farmer Flora BEATON, wife, age 37, 2nd marriage 4 years, 1 child/1 living, born NE, parents born USA/IL, a Dressmaker Hellen M.

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Annie Dolra or Dolva PARSONS which was taken at the Harnish Studio in Albany, OR on 31 Dec 1906. Annie's age is not completely visible on the back of the photograph so all I can see is ? years 4 months and 29 days old, not the actual number of years, but I'm guessing she is about 4-5 years old at the time it was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Annie and her family: Dolora or Dolva Annie PARSONS was b. abt 1901 of 1902 in Marion, OR to parents Charles C. PARSONS (1870-1955) and Katie L. WALLACE (1879-1909). Annie married twice first to Cassius Everett HEAGY (1891-1945) and then to Clarence B. PHELPS (1895-1966). I am hoping to locate someone from Annie’s family so that this precious old photograph can be returned to the care of her 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 belonging to the KIMBLE Family that was taken at the Catterlin Studio in Salem, Oregon. Order instructions for a 16x20 version of the photograph are noted on the back along with the name "Mr. J. A. KIMBLE of Traver, California".

He was married to Lucy Coleman MOORSE (1840-1920) and had two children, Ella b. 1860 in VA; and Frank Alexander KIMBLE (b. 1882 in Kansas-d. 14 Jan 1953 in San Joaquin, CA).

A photo of (L-R) Ellen Sutela Anderson, her mother, Anna Mathiesen Sutela, her father, Thomas Sutela, her daughter, Joy Sutela. Undated, unmarked. Location probably Minneapolis, MN or Portland, Oregon. Looks like they were just on a visit to one another and getting ready to leave with the luggage. This photo, as well as all the Sutela family photos I posted, were contributed by William "Bill" Ostrom, a cousin.
