General Notes (Husband)

An article in the Rocky Mountain News dated 10/26/1969 included an interview with Ira. He states that he was born in the Capps cabin and after three years his family moved to California traveling by a wagon drawn by eight yoke of oxen.

He said that when his mother went into labor she was digging potatoes. His father rode horseback attempting to find a doctor but by the time he arrived back at the cabin with the doctor Ira was born any everyone was doing fine.

Ira was visiting the cabin of his childhood and at the same time he was visiting the graves of his two brothers buried there.

Ira worked all his life in California as a shipbuilder, sawmills, as well as with the railroad.
