John Rowley and Sarah Wright Family Messenger

Reporter, Clara O’Toole

This reporters two daughters, Lottie Bayton, and Selma Chilt, from Western Washington, her husband, John and herself, had a hurried trip through Utah and into Western Colorado in June. Selma was driving her car and had to report for summer classes at Columbia University, N. Y. early in July. In Utah we stopped only at Provo to have the car greased. We telephones Eleanor Terry, and met her and a short but delightful visit. My husband and I went as far as Glenwood Springs, Colo., and returned to Oakland from there. Lottie, an her daughter, went as far as Denver. Lottie returned by air to Port Angeles, Washington and Russelle, went to N. Dakota to spend the summer with her sister, Barbara and husband Gerry Johnson, at the two of Luverne.

My husband and I were raised in the same community in Wester Colo., so we had a delightful time. While in Colorado, I heard that my sister, Winifred and her husband Will Clevenger had been in our old home-town early in June, but she hasn’t written me the details of their trip.

My youngest brother Leslie Rowley and wife, Eleanor, plan to go to Rochester, Minnesota, the last of July. Eleanor, who has been in poor health for quite some time, is going through the Mayo Clinic.

I would like to contact Mary Ann Rowley, or someone close to her. Her mother was Hannah Sorenson and was married to my father in the early 1800’s. My address is as follows:

Mrs. Clara O’Toole
1467 MacArthur Blvd.
Oakland 2, California
