Amarilla learns of the birth of Laurie Jean, a granddaughter in 1908

In 1908, Grace gives birth to another child and names her Laurie Jean. She was best known as Jean.  Laurie Jean was born June 30, 1908 in International Falls.

Jean is featured in posts on the blog “The Man Who Lived Airplanes” especially in her sister “Eddie’s Collection of Junk.” 

Here Jean is a little girl, the earliest photos of her that I have.

Jean would go on to become a sixth grade teacher.  She would meet Roscoe Davis in Idaho and later move to Selah, Washington. Roscoe was a finish carpenter and had a wonderful shop out back of their house. He liked to hunt, fish, go boating and camping so they spent a lot of their time doing these outdoor activities and also visiting their grandchildren.
