I've "rescued" an old photograph labeled with the name of Mrs. J. B. LESS
(believe correct spelling should be LEES) of Boise, Idaho. The photograph
was taken in the 1890's or early 1900's and is of a young boy about 4 years
old. I believe it is a photograph of her son Essington LEES. Writing on the
back of the photograph includes instructions for a color version of the
photograph to be produced including all the specific coloring desired. Based
on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding
Essington and his family:
Essington Arthur LEES was b. 11 Apr 1894 in Genesse, ID to parents James
Baxter LEES (1863-1941) and Lucy Ann PECK (1869-1959). Essington was one of
4 children born to this couple including, Essington Arthur; James Peck;
Herbert Francis; and Nancy Elizabeth LEES, all born between 1894 and 1916.
Essington died in Roundup, MT on 11 Jan 1964 and is buried in Billings, MT.

can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you
know someone who might be, please contact me.
