    Default Marysville, Montana

    When I was a little kid in Helena, my mother's cousin was married to an old, very well off miner named Bill Wade. They lived in a classic old duplex on the side of the mountain above town. We would go to pick Chokecherries and visit. Bill was much older than Sherrie was and still wore boots and breeches.
    Mind you, I am going back well over 40 years on this one.

    Bill,
    Send me more info about your Dad and I will use a website I subscribe to to see if I can find more for you if you want. It would be stuff like death date, census data, etc.

    Bill, I sent you a private message. but I do believe that you and I were distant cousins at one time. When I was a little boy.

    Nice post, Don. Always lively when you put up these great old photo's. Which is a reminder to all the young crowd. Take pictures of what you do when you go out on the trail.

    Yea, verily!

    It's amazing how much changes in only 20 or 30 years. The nostalgia value of even 30 year old photos goes up tremendously when there are few remaining.

    The great thing about digital photography is that pictures can be widely shared and stored. The downside is that we can be overloaded with less-than-noteworthy photos and have to choose carefully what we archive lest we be overburdened.
