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 Emmett Loucks. Photo taken about 1917 (could have been 1918).
He is on the California Death Index with dates of 1897-1954. His FindaGrave burial information.
