I've "rescued" an old photograph of Velma and Ora CROW which was taken at
the Joslin Studio in Palouse, WA. The photograph appears to have been taken
in the early 1900's with the two children ranging in age from about 2-6
years old. The girls are also identified as the "Charlie's Children". Based
on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding
Velma Gladys CROW was b.1 Dec 1902 in Viola, ID to parents Charles Summer or
Sumner CROW (1879-1976) and Ada Louise or Lois HILL (1881-1983). Velma was
one of 10 children born to this couple including, Velma Gladys; Ora Blanche;
Virgie; Charles Ellis; Elzie or Elsie; Leta Josephine; Melvin Franice or
Francis Melvin; and three others, all born between 1902 and 1919. Velma
married twice, one of her husbands was Julius GARTZ (1897-1964) and she had
4 children of her own and died on 9 May 1987 in Spokane, WA.
Velma's sister Ora Blanche CROW was b. 10 Apr 1905 in Viola, ID
