Hope that you all had a great day on Thursday, whether you celebrated Thanksgiving or not. This picture is of my Great-Great Aunt Myra Hedrick (who was married to John Hedrick) ... she raised turkeys in Drain, Oregon for a while. Someday I will do a post about that, and about how the Yoncalla and Drain area was in the turkey business for awhile.
I am sorry that I have been away from Sepia Saturday for so long. Between a broken computer for 2 1/2 weeks and then getting a new one and trying to figure out Windows 8, plus going on vacation ... I have been behind on my whole blog. It is a struggle to get back into routine.
The two little girls in the prompt for this week's Sepia Saturday post reminded me so much of my Granny and Aunt. Last year, I posted about my Great-Grandmother Talitha Letsom Hedrick and her slightly older sister, Martha Letsom Harris. I am going to fill in more blanks on that post and recycle it for today. Though some of you have already seen it, it just matches so well for today's prompt. To read the post, please click here: "Sepia Saturday #90: Sisters Martha Letsom Harris and Talitha Letsom Hedrick"
As I was adding to the post about the Letsoms above, I figured out who the woman was in this post: Ellen Conley, Ft. Bidwell, Surpise Valley, California. Ellen was Amanda Ellen Letsom Conley, Martha and Talitha's half -sister! Way cool; another puzzle piece put together.
