I remember my Grandmother Hanford as a kind caring women as she pass through 98 years of life. She believe strongly on education and saw that her children and grandchildren had an education of their choice. Grandmother Hanford was born on April 4, 1882 in Greeley, Weld, Colorado, education in Washington receiving her BA from Central Washington College at the age 69. She taught 1st grade in Selah, Washington until she was 80 years. In 1944 she married Edwin Roy Hanford and with his family came to Idaho to homestead near Hill City. Later the family moved to Boise. My father Earl Mark Hanford was born on the homestead. I remember my Grandmother with love and very thankful for all the help she gave us.
Below are pictures of her family and scenes from the area where the homesteads were located.
