Antique Photographs of the
I just had a visit from
the Steele family who came out of California.
They brought with
them the most wonderful collection of historically important
photographs of the Poncas and their family from the 1898-1900's
era. I have a wealth of material here and can see it adding a great
collection to your page, thanks to this Jennie Steele and a
photographer, Dillon, who saved this part of history. I have
permission from the family to use these photos for your site. I
will send these beautiful photographs a few at a time so that I will
have something to send out to my mailing list. I get notes from
many people thanking me for sending material out to them, via your
webpage and I'm so thankful that we found each other, Alastair. To
work together for this mutually giving folks a way to cope with
their, sometimes, tragic lives by finding a moment of escape.
These are the descendants of Richard
Steel, Indian agent, 1898-1903 and his
brother, Guy Steele. They came from California to my home, May
2009, a few
days before my birthday, May 31. What a wonderful gift!
