Surnames: Smith, Camp, LaRue, Guignard, Applegate
Samuel Milton Smith moved his family from Nebraska to Hood River in the early 1900s. He and the boys came by covered wagon: the girls came later by train. My grandmother, Kitty Pearl (Smith) Camp was one of the girls.

She married George Camp, a lumberjack, and her sister Bertha, married his brother Charlie. George and Kitty had 3 children together, Regina, Dorcas and Billy, before they divorced when my mom was 8. Kitty raised her children in Hood River. She worked at the hospital, as well as the cannery, as did my mother.

Her daughter, Regina Marjorie (Camp) LaRue, was born in Hood River, and raised there. She met my father, John LaRue, when he was working for his Uncle Ivan Guignard in Hood River.

My father's cousins, the Applegates, also lived in Hood River, and for many years, Thane had a bar there.

If you have any information on any of these families, I would appreciate it!

Thanks,
