|The Dobson Farmhouse is now the home of Mike and Kathy Warnock|
|The new house, 1917|
Lacking the amenities – plumbing, electricity, and heat – the house nevertheless served Grandma and Grandpa comfortably for the rest of their lives. Grandpa passed in 1946, and Grandma Ina continued to live here with the care and companionship of her daughter Myrtle until she passed in 1957. My dad and his family lived in Orofino, but he came frequently to provide maintenance and supplies. He also farmed.

[A portrait of the family on the front steps of the new house was a great idea. Too bad it isn't good. Nevertheless, I cropped the picture and enlarged it in order to identify: Ina and Jack Dobson stand on the right. The others are five of their six children: Vance (my dad) and Shirley stand in front with Ethel, Earle, and Pearl behind.]
