Henry James Eastburn, Bieber, Lassen County, California

The next photo album belonging to Esther Durfee has now been scanned. By this time she was Esther Durfee Crews. Photos of many people, sadly no photos of Esther are located in the album. These photos cover the time frame from about 1919 to 1923.

It is believed that most of the photos were taken in Bieber, Lassen County, California. There are of course exceptions to this and they are noted when found.

Today’s photo is of Jim Eastburn. It was taken about 1921. In looking for other information about him I found his WWI draft registration. He was born, Henry James Eastburn, July 6, 1874, in Kansas. He signed with his mark. He worked the stock yards, "breaking and shipping horses." He had a daughter Virginia Eastburn in Lightly, California [September 12, 1918].
