     As of 1901,her married name was Boyd (Palmer). In 1898, Nettie A lived Marion County, Oregon.2

Henry J and Nettie were still at this address in 1942 in the voter registration rolls. The property looks now to be a strip mall and apartment buildings.

Henry J was a photographer, at least from about 1891. In the 1900 census Henry is living in South Lebanon, listed as widowed. Nettie is also in South Lebanon, working as a servant for the Donaca family.

From their marriage until about 1930 they lived in various places including Newport, Oregon in 1912, where they received a postal card from the owner of the General Store in Elk City, and Ashland, Oregon, where Nettie's sister Nellie lived with them while attending Southern Oregon Normal School.3

They moved to Los Angeles, California by 1922, where Henry J., photographer, and Nettie, housewife, are shown on the voter registration rolls.

In 1934, Henry J, Nettie, Hal, and Mary Lou are all living on the same block. Henry J and Nettie are at 116 W 79th Street, Los Angeles, Hal and Mary Lou are at 118 1/2.

In 1940, Hal and Mary Lou, with children, are living at 1853 48th Street, Los Angeles, according to the 1940 census.
Henry and Nettie are living at 116 W 79th Street, Los Angeles.
In 1944, Nettie is living with Hal and Mary Lou at 1851 W 49th Street, according to the voter registration list.
This house still stands. It looks (from above) like the house I remember.
