Walter G. Gloyd & Virginia Gloyd & Hood River 1901-1916

Surnames: Gloyd, Woodward
My great uncle & aunt, Walter Gerry & Virginia "Jane" (Woodward) Gloyd operated a boarding house for a short period of time in Hood River in the very early could have been before their daughter, Marion Olive Gloyd, (born May 11, 1901 in Portland, OR) left home for New York City at age 16, in 1917. It could also have been after 1917 & before Walter's death in 1938.
I doubt if the Gloyd's owned a boarding house; I imagine they rented out rooms in a house they rented.
They had already tried their hand at homesteading near Silverton at Scott's Mills, operating a prune orchard near Tigard or Newberg and ended up living in the Prederman home on Mt. Tabor as caretakers. He was a dreamer, not a business man or farmer, though may have thought he was.

I just reread your nice email with the information on my cousin, Marion Gloyd
I recall reading your email 2 years ago, and I thought I had replied asking you to email the photo of Marion in her wedding dress.
Somehow I don't recall ever receiving that email. Since 2010 I have changed my email address from Barwayhess@aol.com to butterfly9356@comcast.net
I apologize for the confusion. I was busy quilting and left the genalogy for another dayh.
