The following are pictures that I have accumulated that I feel can be displayed
with no security risk. All are duplicated in the restricted area.

"Great Granddad with Third Wife circa 1880"

William Henry Harrison Shasteen and third wife
Augusta Jane Sauerbrei
This picture was one of the few items my father received from his parents home when they died in an auto accident August 19, 1941 in which he was the driver. He rolled it up and stuck it inside a Santa Fe Railroad map and stuck it in his GI locker until I found it in the mid 1980's and had it framed.
Apparently Augusta did not want to raise his previous wife's children and they took a trip to Kansas and Colorado and indentured at least two of the children before coming home!
Picture is approximately 22 w x 17 h
The shop that framed it for me said it was some sort of photo portrait that was done in this period of time where the base picture is a photographic process and added on top of that is a
portraiture painting process of some sort.
Likely Namesake of William Henry Harrison

 "Great Granddad in1913"

Edna Shasteen
, William Henry Harrison Shasteen, Logan Shasteen,
and Carey Shasteen on horse
Logan was William Henry Harrison's third child by his third wife.
