Thanks to S. Greer for letting me use these photos.

Born Nov 1868

Married Addie M Barger, ABT 1894.  Some genealogical information names her Addie or Adda Pearson.  The marriage certificate reads Adda M Barger.  Pearson was the name of a neighbor, which inexplicably got put into someone's records as Addie's maiden name.  Addie's parents are John Barger, b. 1844 Illinois, and Mary Lewellyn, b. 1850 Indiana.   
 
Her father's obituary says: John Barger, one of the pioneers of Coos county, left here [Oregon?] many years ago for California, died Nov. 6, 1926 at Watsonville. He was 82 years of age. He was a native of Ohio. Leaves 6 children: 3 daughters in Calif;, a daughter and son (Mrs. W.M. Weekly and Will Barger) of Myrtle Point and one sister in Bellingham, Wa.(source is not stated)
