Anonymous : Photograph Collection: George S. And Mary E. Fee Family from Buford, North Dakota. Ca.1902-1912

The George S. (Samuel or Sam) and Mary E. Fee 'Family' photograph collection. George S. Fee (1870-1942) and Mary E. Fee (1873-1941) were natives of Richland County, Illinois and were married in 1890 (photo included), first living in Campbell, Missouri before moving to Buford, North Dakota in 1902 where they worked 160 acres raising cattle and running a small mercantile shop. In 1912 the Fee family, now ten daughters and two sons strong, moved to La Grande, Oregon and on to Payette, Idaho in 1915. The Fees and many of their children finally settled in Boise, Idaho (a photo of some of the daughters behind the parents gravestone is also included). The photograph collection along with a small group of letters, about a dozen, give a history of the family slowly moving west while growing in size and changing lifestyles as the parents age and the children and grandchildren grow into adulthood. The two binders contain over a hundred amateur and professional photos relating to the family in Buford and the activities they engaged in. Many of the photos were taken by Flora (later Mrs. C.E. Boggs) and Nola ("Willie") along with their mother. Nola attended the Devil's Lake School for the Deaf and Dumb during the 1910s. The photos show the rugged farming life the Fee family lived around Buford while cattle ranching and gardening. Views of commercial buildings and streets in Buford are included along with the some scenes of social life in this small town. Some of the picture postcards have notes on the backs and were mailed and posted. Other pictures have annotations on the back as to person, place, and/or time. A small number of photos relate to the Southwick family of western Montana in the early 1900s who were related to the Fees. Two other boxes of photos (hundred plus) touch on the family members in Oregon and Idaho during the 1930s and 1940s as they went on vacations and off to war. The collection seems to end about 1950. Many of the photos are group shots of the family. Also included are several newspaper clippings about the Fee's golden wedding anniversary in 1940.. Book. Book Condition: Collectible-Fine.
