Taken about 1910

Left to right: Clint's wife Mary "Polly"; of Indian descent,Jacob Colombus; "Jake's" wife, Leuritha, holding Ellen; than Jane, Mary, Bela, Judy, Collie, Frank and Ola. Alfred seems to be missing from the right, since he was born between Ola and Ellen.


Listen

About all I can remember was she said, "It was terrible; going across North Texas, with extreme dry heat, and the typical sage brush blowing in the wind. It was such a long distance !" Can you imagine? All those kids! Did they all go?

The photo above is not their family. I copied this from the neat little magazine of "REMINISCENCE", but it may have been very similar to their mode of traveling. They had a touring car, but how crowded it must have been! When and where did they all sleep? At least the pioneers had a covered wagon in which to travel. Did Jake's mother, Polly, come back from Washington with them? Is that why he made the trip out there? A lot of unanswered questions, so far.
She also said they stopped by to see relatives in Arkansas, and evidently intended to stay a while, because Jake bought a filling station or maybe only intended to buy one, because in 6 mos. or so, they headed back for West Virginia.
