Thomas William Vandevert ("Uncle Bill") and Family
Thomas William, the oldest son in the
family, had a ranch about six miles away, at Paulina Prairie. "Uncle
Bill", his wife Dorothy, and their daughter Barbara, were frequent visitors to
the Homestead. The photo, looking west from the homestead, shows Barbara
(on the right) with Claude and Pearl's two oldest children, Grace and Claude.
