She is rather young but Gramps has her on the tractor! Love ya Mom!
Maybe a year old or a few month more. Circa 1919-1920. No location indicated but likely Sunnyslope or Caldwell ID.
Looks to be Caldwell circa 1919 or early 1920 again. My mother Brenda the littlest one on the far left.

My mother (Brenda Steunenberg Richards) at the Olde Towne Eatery at 712 Main Street (Steunenberg Block) in Caldwell, Idaho. Undated photo 1960's (?). Maybe more like the 1970's. Not sure if I was there on that occasion or not. Below is a screenshot of the vacant location as of the last Google photo 2019.
Just recently I discovered the following photographs on the Facebook page for the Historical Museum in Caldwell.

|The "large amount of the widow's original property was given to charity" would be interpreted by me as meaning the Adventist Church.|
|"Idaho coal fields" should be silver, zinc and lead mining. Gold initially but had pretty well played out.|

I wonder if that was Frank Steunenberg's engraved 1895 Savage rifle? We know his brother Will had it after Frank's assassination and later mentioned the rifle in a hand written last Will and Testament.
"see that the guns get good keepers. And if any of Frank’s Boys ever show any tendency to guns & will take care of same; give them the gun that belonged to Frank the 30-303 savage."
I don't know where any of the guns belonging to my great grandfather or his brothers ended up. Unfortunately none of them are in my gun safe.

A few memories with Bill and talks about family history! This was back in 2005.
|Bill left and John right at the family plot Canyon Hill Cemetery in Caldwell, ID|
|Serious discussion no doubt|
|In the prior photo, Bill & I were "lifting" the piece of granite that would be made into this memorial. It stands outside the Caldwell train station. Bill was the driving force behind this project.|
