…the History Mystery for May 2013!
This photo was given to us from Margaret Morrow-Young she said it was a part of her mother’s photo collection. Her mother’s name was Vie Sargent in which she worked at the North Fork Indian Mission as a missionary in the 1920’s. She then married and became Vie Morrow. This cabin may have been located by the North Fork Mission.
Does anyone know where it is located? Does anyone know who may have lived here?

In our next episode of The History Mystery, we’ll tell you what we learned about this photograph.
The April 2013 History Mystery #4, was the photo posted below. We appreciate the one response we received to help us with History Mystery #4. This is what we now know:
The picture was from 1921 when the residents of Wawona needed a pedestrian bridge to allow the School children on the North side of the South Fork of the Merced River to go to school on the south side. The “Indian Bridge” was built near rocks that were used by the Indians to grind acorns. The bridge was rebuilt several time, but washed out for the last time in the 1937 flood.
