Chapter 9 - Idaho and Washington (1890-1908)

William and Mildred, most of their children (including John Wright Wheatley III), and Mildred’s brother Ed moved first to Post Falls, Idaho, and then to the Spokane area. They made a go at ranching. Their daughter Harriet married William Irvin Williams, whose family had moved to Washington from Iowa a few years before. Possibly at the time of the St. Louis Exhibition in 1904, some of the children made a return trip to Pennsylvania, Virginia and Missouri, and took a new portable camera with them.
