  General Notes:

Transcribed from a letter written by Hope Rathbun to Jesse Rathbun, Dated 29 October 1982.

"Here is a little 'tid bit' to add to your knowledge of the grandparents (Logan and Irene Jackson) as told me by Grandpa and Grandma. Dad (Logan) moved next door to the place where mother (Irene) was living in 1915. Mom (Irene) was 13. She said her mother took a liking to dad and wanted him for a son-in-law. Dad (Logan) said he met mom (Irene) out in a cotton field where the two of them were picking cotton. Mom's mother wanted her to get married at the age of 13 but dad put his foot down and said no way. So just a little over a month from her 16th birthday they were married in 1917 (9 Dec).
Along came World War I and grandpa went into the army. He went to France. He was gassed by Mustard gas. His ears still bother him some where the gas touched the skin. Grandmother (Irene) said he came backa different person than the happy-go-lucky person she married.
Over his 25 years grandpa (Logan) had traveled around Missouri, Northern Texas and Oklahoma working before coming to the part of Oklahoma where grandmother lived. Working at all kinds of jobs. Took a stint working on the railroad, farming, etc.
After the war ended grandpa came back to Oklahoma. They deceided to move out to Oregon. So they packed their few possessions and started out walking to Oregon. Grandma was 17 at the time. Grandpa 30. He was 28 whey they married.
When they walked up into Colorado dad (Logan) took two weeks out to work to earn money for train fare - Because grandmother was pregnant with your Uncle Henry they stopped off in Idaho Falls (Idaho) in the middle of the night. They went to the Raymond Hotel where they stayed for a few days until they found a place to live. The hotel is no longer there.
They lived on Roy Bennetts Farm when Henry was born. Was a very rough winter. They had one meal a day. Potatoes and milk. Times were bad-wages were low. Both picked potatoes in order to have food to eat. He also worked for the Twitchels and other farmers.
From there they moved to West 19th street. They were there when I (Leona) was born (a 10 full months due to fact her pains came in 9th month and quit. So 10th month doctor said he would have to deliver the baby without labor pain contractions. Mother (Irene) pushed with her hands and the doctor pulled with the forceps. Mother almost died, as Idid. Doctor said neither of us could live. So she hoped I did. Hense the name Hope. I have the marks of the forceps on my head. Also an ulcer in my tiny tummy when I was born. At that time mom said she only had two meals a day - potatoes and milk for breakfast. Milk and potatoes for supper. Dad worked for the Sunnyside Dairy in order to get the milk.
In 1932 Dad bought the land on E. 14th Street where in March of that year they put up a two room house. We lived in a tent while the house(a shell) went up. We all slept in one room - ate, cooked and lived in the other room. The boys slept in the top bunk and us girls in thelower bunk. Folks in the "
big bed" behind the curtain at the other end of the room. The walls molded that first year. Was so wet.
In 1936 dad added two rooms to the backside of the house - Mozelle and I shared a "big" bed in one room. The bunk beds were moved into the smaller room and porch area. No heat in this room in winter. Had to go out onto the porch to go into this room. Our room had no heatereither. Wasn't until I married that we had heat in a bedroom. AfterBob and Henry left home we moved into the little room and the folks into our room. The front room for the first was just that. Dad put uptwo chimneys and a second heater was installed. After I left home water was brought into the house shortly before they sold the house (in 1947) sold house in 1948. They moved to Bakersfield for three months. From there 3 months later they moved to Lewiston (Idaho) where they have been ever since.
Dad worked for the city on the upper dam when a flood in Snake River washed out the area where he was working. He ended up in the hospitalwith broken ribs. I vaguely remember the incident. We were living on W. 19th Street. at the time. I was 4 or 5 at the time.
