- The Bixbys -
from Painted Post, New York to Santa Cruz, California

Helen Bixby Crum
Paul's mother - about 1876
Paul Crum in 1883
before Helen died tragically young
Paul at Camp Tra-la-la-boom-da-re
while living in California with his mother's family
Helen Bixby's five siblings.
Paul lived with the California Bixbys after his mother died. Left to right: Russel Rock, Charles Amasa, Hattie, Irene, Frank. This was taken "at Frank's place in Castro Valley" in June or July, 1908.
The 5 again - still together - perhaps 15 years later:
Left to right: Frank, Charles Amasa, Hattie, Russel Rock, Irene. Charles died in 1923, so it may be one of the last pictures taken of him.

"High School Girl"
1887 - 1908
A picture of controversy:
On the back is written "Helen"
... IS it a picture of a young Helen Bixby? or is it another picture of Irma Reynolds? Who is this?
