Historic Hood River
I’ve run across the Sherrieb name many times but we haven’t discussed them. F. C. Sherrieb and his wife were orchardists in this area as early as 1889. I see a land patent for Mr. Sherrieb for the NE quarter section of section 9, township 2 north, range 10 east. According to my handy county map this is a 160 acre parcel bounded by Country Club Road, Barrett Road and Markham Road, which we consider Rockford today.
This nice portrait shows Mrs. Sherrieb with daughter Mildred.
Based on newspaper clippings I see the Sherrieb’s were active locally at least through 1922, and a Ralph Sherrieb managed a Fireston Tire store on Barrett Road (probably at Rockford).
