Historic Hood River
Marie Lockman Kemp
Notes indicate this is Marie Lockman Kemp. We have an extensive collection of images from the Kemp family, but not much context.
I see a 1911 newspaper article in which Miss Marie Lockman of Odell is treasurer of a new division of the WCTU. If I am following the breadcrumbs properly I believe she married Dane Kemp in 1911.
Yes, she married Dane Raworth Kemp and they had two children, Frederick who was born in 1912 and died at age about 9 in 1927. Their daughter was Helen who was born in 1912 and died in 1933 at age 21. Her full name was Laura Marie. She was born in 1889 in Nebraska and died in August 1981, so lived a good long life. She is buried with Dane in Pine Grove.
Nice composition, the hill, the road and the buggy backed slightly for background by the sad looking horse. Would not have been easy getting in or out of the buggy with this nice traveling dress..
The horse is snoozing.
What's with the cut up logs on the left hand side of the road.
If you click the Kemp tag, there are other photos of the Kemp family and their history.
Wow, both her kids died before she did. Doesn't sound too good to me. Any knowledge on how they died?
The Hood River Glacier, Hood River, OR., November 25, 1893, page 3
Friday last Fred Kemp, Jr., met with an accident which resulted in his death Tuesday. He was coming to town with a load of wood, and in coming down the Tucker hill the wood crowded out against the brake rod, so that it would not work. The horses could not hold the wagon, and just at the turn in the road Fred pulled them into the bank. The momentum was such that instead of stopping, the wheel was pushed up on the bank, upsetting the wagon. The poor boy was thrown on his back in the road, the load falling on him. The accident was seen from Tucker's and willing hands soon released him. When found, a side stake was lying across his hips, the weight of the load resting on the pelvis. He was taken home at once, but was not thought to be seriously hurt, as there were no bruises on him except on his back, where he struck in the road. Later he began to experience terrible pains, and Dr. Brosius was called. He found the public arch had been injured by the great weight, splinters of bone being broken from the inner side, one of which had cut the urethra. Drs. Morgan and Barrett were called in consultation and everything possible was done, but in vain, and after terrible suffering, death came to his relief Tuesday morning. Fred was a bright, happy dispositioned boy who was loved by all. The funeral took place Thursday morning, at ten o'clock, the interment being in Pine Grove cemetery.
Her parents William and Helen Lockman are also buried in Pine Grove.
