John Henry "Kelly" Crews, Bieber, Lassen County, California, ca 1917
My grandmother, Esther Durfee, was a budding photographer while
living as a young woman with her parents in Bieber, Lassen County,
California. Her father, Thomas Jefferson Durfee was the postmaster there
over many years. When young Esther got her first camera she seemed to
have made it her mission to photograph every person within the
community, or so it seemed! The first photo album has had all the people
who were identified in it, scanned.
Today I would like to introduce you to John Henry "Kelly" Crews. Kelly was Esther's first husband. Photos taken about 1917 (could have been 1918).
