Beulah Summers, 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 Beulah Summers. Photo taken about 1917 (could have been 1918). She was my 1st cousin, twice removed. Her mother was Ida Frances Dunlap and father was James Thomas Summers.

Beulah is 4th from the left.
