Today's Surname Saturday entry is a little more difficult to do and a little more complicated. Each of the main River Portal households had a separate entry posted this week devoted just to that particular family. Although I'm only posting surnames of 4 households - one of them is my Mason family. In doing that I've also posted obituaries that list surnames of spouses of the daughters of John and Anna Mason and surnames of Anna's sisters. I'll try to separate these so you can tell which ones are the River Portal households and which are surnames from the obituaries. Okay...here goes:
Household # 14 - John Belcher
Household # 15 - Frank Dawson (wife's maiden name Dougherty)
Household # 16 - Jack Kinyon
Household # 17 - John Mason
Places mentioned in the info posted include Ireland, England, Wales, Colorado, Kansas, Iowa, Idaho, Oregon, California.
It's worth taking note that Agnes (nee Dougherty) Dawson is one of multiple members of the Dougherty family living in multiple households in River Portal in 1910.
John & Anna's Info & Obituaries:
Mason, Phillips, Collins, Higgins, Blakely, Toney, Muir, Satero, Murphy, Callaghan
(NOTE: I've used the proper spellings instead of the ones that were erroneously spelled in the newspaper.)
