    (8 Aug 2013)

    The Q-Bar was where Dad worked during his horse roundup days, someplace between 1916-1919 As far as I know it was a ranch though, probably a large one for that time and place. Lester's family was likely working there at the time he was born, since dad said there were lots of riders working there, as well as other ranch help... Dad bought, or traded work, for a 1/4 section from a man named Madison... (And then) dad was working in MN..(And Then) dad had traveled back west, and ended up working on a ranch owned by the Creighton family, about 3 miles north of our ranch. Mother's sister's place was just a couple of miles away, which is how they met...After the depression hit they both worked on the Creighton ranch for a $1.00 a month, and a one room 12x12 shack. By growing gardens, picking berries, hunting game, butchering livestock, and canning everything!, as far as I know they mostly avoided having to go hungry, although they, as most did, they had little else...When I was about 2 years old dad built a one room log house (with the logs he got from the Wood's place). We all moved there into that one room cabin, and he then dismantled and moved the log cabin from the location across the river and rebuilt it at the new location. He placed it apart from the other cabin, and later connected the two cabins with another log room. My first recollection of living there were when the two cabins were connected together with just ridge logs and a roof.
