    Bought undeveloped land in Chesaw, WA and built his own house and a huge barn on top of a steep hill. My mother lived in the house on the hilltop when she was a child. Farmed with horse drawn wagons and implements. Hand shocked wheat crops.

    Sometime before I was born, he moved in a 2nd house to the bottom of the hill from somewhere else and built a second story on it, and a new barn, chicken coup, woodshed and outhouse. When I was a child he raised hay and a small cow herd, still using horses to pull the hay wagon.

    There was a hand pump with cold water in a sink in the kitchen. My grandmother cooked and baked on a wood stove and churned her own butter and ice cream. We took baths in a big galvanized washtub in the kitchen and heated the water on the wood stove. You can see the washtub in the photo of Evan and Cora below.

    Both houses are gone now, but the barn and pioneer cabin are still there. 
    Residence 1920-1937  Huntley, Okanogan Co, Washington Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Lived in a rented house. The rent was $6.00/month in 1935. Was this the house in Tunk Valley above Riverside, WA? My mother, (youngest daughter Velma), who was born in 1935, said they lived in Tunk Valley until she was two, then moved to Chesaw, WA.

    Evan Colbert Barn, circa 1960
    The barn next to the house at the bottom of the hill in Chesaw, Washington, circa 1960, when the grandchildren were visiting. There was no indoor plumbing in the house. There was another house and barn at the top of the hill they lived in when their children were growing up. There was an even older one room sod roof and log cabin on the property, built into the side of the hill, a little ways below the barn pictured, with half the building inside the hill. The old log cabin was tiny, maybe 8' x 10'
