Putnam/ Dougherty family genealogy

This weeks theme on Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors – 52 Weeks is “favorite photograph”.
I love all the old photo’s we have of the California early days in the mountains near Visalia, California.

This Photo has A.R. Moore written in the lower right hand corner. Mr. Moore at one time had a photography studio in Porterville. When the studio was destroyed by fire about 1914 he retired. Today you can find several of his photo’s online and last month while working the Redwood Regional Logging Conference in Eureka I met another vendor who deals in old photos from the lumber camps of California. He said he had many of A.R. Moore photos from the Sequoia’s. This photo is one of several that our family has from when Ike Putnam, my grandfather, was working in the logging camps north east of Visalia. I have no idea who the other loggers in this photo are. But I love that we can see the kind of work that Ike was involved in and get a glimpse of the man himself at work.
