Saturday Night Fun Facts about my Dad

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:
1)  Sunday, 21 June, is Father's Day.  Let's celebrate by writing a blog post about our father, or another significant male ancestor (e.g., a grandfather).

2)  What are three things about your father (or significant male ancestor) that you vividly remember about him?

3)  Tell us all about it in your own blog post


Well my dad was the son of a farmer, and even though he was a good gardener, he did not like farming. He liked to read but as a child he got bad headaches when he read very long. Turned out he was far sighted and the eye test he took as a child was the eye chart at 20 feet, which was easy for him, he could see a long way without his glasses.
He left home and worked in a logging camp in North Idaho, and later bought a Model T truck to haul logs. Later bought a Model A truck, and even later a Ford V8 truck. 
He lived long enough to see his listing in the 1910 census (Minnesota), 1920 census (Montana) and the 1930 census (Idaho).

Two more photos from my grand aunt Latisha Vanderpool's photo album.

Both have numbers and looks like the same person for each number.

Saturday Night Fun Courthouse Flagpole

For this week's mission (should you decide to accept it), I challenge you to:

1)  I am away at the SCGS genealogy Jamboree this weekend, having too much fun (I hope!).


2)  What was your best genealogy research "find" in May 2015?  It could be a record, it could be a photograph, etc.  Whatever you judge to be your "best."

3)  Tell us about it in a blog post of your own, or in a comment to this blog post, 

OK here is mine, funny thing is I did not know what the find was when I found it. Been doing research on the building of our Spokane County Courthouse, and the newspaper has been great in describing the progress they are making as they get ready to move in later in the year. This newspaper clip is from the Spokane Chronicle July 24, 1895 page 3. The last paragraph is the find. Seem like they did not know when the flag was put on the tower on the front of the courthouse. They had to rebuild the mounting for the flagpole a year or so ago and they dated the flagpole to in the 19-- teens, so this newspaper clip shows it was flying above the courthouse before they even moved in (they did move in by November of 1895).
