Old Photos of Yuma



This is probably taken from near the intersection of now U.S. 34 and Colorado 59.  The water standpipe is the most distinctive, and I think the outline to the left of it is the old school - and the spire on the right side of the photo might be the Lutheran church.

The crop, probably wheat, has been "bound" and "shocked".

Postcard was mailed to George  D. Tindall, 601 South 30th, Lincoln, Nebraska from "Brot Jim"

There's a George Tindall in Lincoln in 1920 - a railroad engineer - so he might be able to afford the BIG house at that address.

J.A. Tindall - by the 1920 atlas - had a quarter of land two miles east of the Yuma  Cemetery.

James Allen Tindall - brother in the 1900 census - is in Nebraska in 1910, and WWI draft registration has him farming in Yuma.  He's farming in the 1920 and 1930  (on South Ash Street) census of Yuma. with wife "Nellie", daughter LaVerne, son Allen  Daughter Iva was an eighth grade graduate from Yuma in 1922.

They were delinquent on their taxes that fall, on a quarter in Section 24, 3N 48W - which would be a few miles north-northwest of Yuma.

But he's not in the 1934 or 1937 directories, or the Yuma Cemetery.

Probably are in Friends Cemetery, Newberg, Oregon
