There is nothing like getting an email from someone who read one of your blog posts and has a connection. In this case "K" emailed me that he recently bought and restored the home that James and Bessie (Bowman) Rankin owned in Claremont, California. This is going to take me on a treasure hunt, as I think I have pictures of this house taken in the 1920-1940 range. Since no one in my family EVER wrote on the pictures - well with the possible exception of some of the photos my dad labeled - I'll have to send some to "K" to find out.
