|George Gorton II, circa 1916|
|Betty, Charles (in the middle), and James. Year unknown.|
|Betty, year unknown.|
|James (in the back) with Charles 'driving'. Year unknown, photo postcard.|
Photo postcard with George III and Betty. Sept 21, 1907.
Text is:We have been spending the day in Milwaukee. How do you like our pictures? With Love, Geo. + Betty.
|Back of above postcard. Relationship to Mrs. Chas. Johnson of Chicago is completely unknown.|
|Christmas photo/card, dated Dec. 1924 (but it seems unlikely that the photo was taken in December...)|
|And all of the signatures on the back. The chopped off content on the right hand side says: "Delay unavoidable"|
|A photo postcard: James on the left and Charles on the right. The identities of the two women are unknown.|
|Charles and George III, year unknown.|
|Buildings in Cement, OK. Probably "Gortonville" area. Based upon the map on the inside front of George III's book, the well is probably the No. 1 Surbeck (oil) well, or possibly the No. 1 Wade (gas) well.|
Probably from March, 1921. A cropped version of this photo exists
in George III's book, with the caption "Breaking a road through the drifts."
Yes, the fuzzy/obscured thing on the left is a car. Someone was moving pretty quickly when they hit the drift. It also seems that there is someone watching from the door of the office building (marked "A").
|A letter from Sophy to Charles, possibly 1926|
|The envelope from the family's 1929 christmas card.|
|With two inserts inside, both signed by the family members.|
|Table of contents to George's (unpublished) autobiography|
|Some sketches for said manuscript|
|A chestnut given to John Gorton as a gift, dated Oct. 1, 1949|
