Fay Vestal, Bieber, Lassen County, California



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 Fay Vestal. Photo taken about 1917 (could have been 1918). This is the girls basketball team! Fay is 2nd from the right.


Her FindAGrave photo (and more information) is here.
