Re: Photo: Owen, WI Train Trestle
Contact: Ken Shoop


What year was this photo taken? My Grandparents, both the Shoops and Colburns - left the Neillsville, Wis.Washburn area in 1907. Grandma Shoop (Edna Colburn Shoop) told me they rented a box car -- and took their possessions - and left by train to La Center, Washington (State) eventually going into Oregon.It would be intersting to know what train they most likely left in? Anyone have some ideas? Ken Shoop (2grt Grandson of Joseph W Colburn and Grt Grandson of Andrew Shoop)
