Surnames: Farnam
This attached photo was taken in front of the dugout house of Rathael Farnam who lived on the West Side Road. We don't know the identity of the gentleman in the photo or when exactly the photo was taken. Anyone recognize him? Know anything about Rathael Farnam or his wife Emma, or his sons Percy, Edwin, Arthur, and Orville? Would love any info anyone could provide.

Yes, thank you for the information. The man in the photo is not a Farnam and I was just interested in identifying him and learning any personal stories about the Farnams and the Copeland area of Boundary County. The "History of Boundary County" is a useful book and has given me much information. Just thought there was someone out there who remembered them. Thanks again.
