[From my personal collection]
As usual Dad had me posed facing into the sun so my eyes are closed as usual. I'm not sure if I was waving or trying to shield my face from the sunlight.

"...Held on a charge of forgery, Edward Tibbetts was arraigned before Judge Leslie yesterday afternoon, and entered a plea of not guilty. He will be tried at the next term of the district court. Tibbetts is alleged to have passed a bogus check for $40 on George Cor, a local saloon keeper on March 18, 1910. The check was drawn on the First National bank and was signed "J. E. Hammond, secretary." When the check was presented for payment the bank turned it down and the matter was reported to the police. Tibbetts was arrested on March 23, on Central avenue, by Chief of Police Pontet.
Pending his trial, Tibbetts is langusihing in the Cascade county jail."***
|Definitely him--he has two sisters, Mrs. A. J. Knot and Elizabeth Hamblin (his older sisters Mary Eliza Tibbetts and Elizabeth Jane Tibbetts) in East Portland, which is where they lived. I prefer more formal portraits, but any time I can catch a glimpse of an ancestor or kin I'll take it.

|Thanks to the Ohio Genealogical Society, Fairfield Chapter, the 1820 Federal Census for Pleasant Township, Fairfield County, Ohio has been transcribed (and some blessed soul even numbered them). Ignore my scribbles.|
|Using the numbers in the name transcriptions, I tried to figure out where Samuel Patterson's neighbors were (so perhaps where he was) in 1820. I used the HistoryGeo site, although you could also use BLM if you don't have a subscription. From the list and the map I would guesstimate that Samuel was somewhere in the axis of 985/982/994, possibly bordered by the modern roads of Lancaster Thornville Rd NE, Rainbow Dr NE, and Mud House Rd NE.|
Tax lists of all kinds, whether head taxes or taxes on real estate or personal property, are a rich source of data on families and individuals often recorded nowhere else.
|My great grandparents George Hartley and Minnie Nosler lived near Riverton, Coos, Oregon in the 1910 Census. Looking up the location in Google Maps in Map View gives this image. Notice there is a muted topographical aspect.|
|Switching to the Google Map Satellite View gives a better idea of the area, particularly giving some additional form to the river snaking around the higher ground.|
|The Terrain View in Google Maps (note: for some reason I can't switch directly from Satellite View to Terrain View, I have to switch back to Map View and THEN Terrain View).|
|The default is the Map View, and the Satellive View option is readily available at the lower left side of the map.|
|To get to the Terrain View, you go the left pane with the left-pointing doubble arrows, and Terrain View (as well as other options) becomes visible.|
