Posted 7/10/02 A photo of my great grandfather, Henry L. Pittock, from Portland, Oregon standing with a group of women on a lava flow.  We are trying to identify the women in the photo.  I know the photo was taken sometime between Feb. 3 and Feb. 17, 1906.  Tildie MacNaughton TildieM@aol.com 

Response on 11/8/02   The picture of Henry L. Pittock that Tildie Mc Naughton posted is
fascinating. As he is also my Great-Grandfather, I can only add that two of the women pictured are to me, by looks,  relatives. Please ask Tildie if she thinks that lady sitting next to HLP is our Great-Grandmother Georgiana---- and the lady the furthest away could possible be Georgiana's sister.
Anyway, I would appreciate it if you would give Tildie my e-mail address and we can discuss it further. I also would love a copy of the photo, it is wonderful !!
