Cattle Buyers from Weiser, Idaho

This card is postmarked Oregon 1912 with a one cent stamp. It's addressed to a Miss. Gorgie Ashpaugh, White Bird, Idaho. White Bird has been crossed out and, Navawai, Wa.?, has been written in. The message reads:

Dear Friend: We are at Drewsey, Oregon and are O.K. How are you giting along and how is Salmon River. Good bye ans. soon. Mrs. John Karnes

Okay, in my quest to figure out where Navawai, Washington was I found the following:

Wawawai, Washington, Whitman County [where the Wawawai Creek runs into the Snake River].

Washington State University Libraries

Photographs, 1890ís -1907

The Ashpaugh family photographs were donated to the Washington State University Library by Ethlyn Louise Zerr McKellips in May, 1967. They were arranged and processed by David Smestad in March, 1978.


The Ashpaughs were early Whitman County residents. Some of the children attended Washington State College and its "prep" school. Emma Rossiter Ashpaugh was the mother of Susan, Ellen, and Georgia Ashpaugh.

This Card Was Mailed To Gorgie Ashpaugh
