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 the Vera McKenzie. Photo taken about 1917 (could have been 1918). She was with Fay Thompson.
This could be Harriet V. McKenzie located as wife of Asa McKenzie in the 1920 census in Big Valley, Lassen County, California.
