Re: what happened to them?
Thanks so much for your response.I have been looking for these two people for quite a while now.I have a great deal of information on all the people listed in your response, but none gives me any clues as to what happened to Annie and Jack Yarber.
I am descended from Nettie Kimball Yarber.Sister of Annie Kimball Yarber.
It is my belief that "Jack" Yarber is actually Jefferson Yarber b. 1862 Oregon. Annie and Jack were married at the home of Charles and Sarah Ladro (Sarah is Annie and Nettie's sister). I believe that Jack is the brother of Solomon Yarber that Nettie married. The William Yarbor you found on the 1900 census is also a brother.
I have come across a picture of Jack and Annie, with two small children (apprx 5 and 2 yrs old). The back of the picture states it was taken in Washougal, Washington just before the family disappeared.
I have traced Solomon Yarber parents and other siblings, and talked to family members associated with them. So far, none knows of the fate of Jefferson Yarber or even if he is the one that married Annie.
I do know that Solomons Father passed away in Grant County, Oregon area around 1897.I believe this is what brought the Yarber boys to the area where they met the Kimball girls.
An "older" family member tells the story of them disappearing from their home on the river.That Annie's dad went there, and the home was intact.All clothing there, food on the table.Just no Annie and Jack or kids. None was ever seen again.
Where else should I look?
Anything else you would like to know?
I love a good puzzle.......dont you?
