Historic Hood River
Charlott Wells Jones
As many of you know, Charlott Wells Jones passed recently. I actually only met her in person once, but for 10 years we’ve all had a daily conversation with her though this website. She reliably commented on photos shortly after they appeared at 7:00:00. I knew I didn’t have to work too hard at my descriptions of any image from Pine Grove and environs because she would reliably fill in the genealogy and then add a great story based on her personal memories. We’ll miss you Charlott, but we’re thankful for all the history and memories you’ve shared with us.
Charlott was always a big advocate of labeling your images. I believe the inscription on the reverse of this image is in her hand. It says, “Perry Edward Wells with his grandchildren. Bernard Eugene Wells (in green chirt), Charlott Wells, Robert Wayne Wickman, Forrest Milton Wells (blue shirt). 1955 Christmas.”
