I am so fond of the stories of your grandmother (?). My father-in-law and his family lived down the hill from the Stewarts in Burt Fork. Their cabin, before it fell completely and was removed by the then owner of the land, looked like the one in your photos. My father-in-laws sister Eleanor dated one of the sons for awhile before leaving to finish school in Salt Lake City. My FIL's brother Emery married one of the Pulham girls from McKinnon and moved his family along with his parents and siblings to Harrisburg, Oregon in the mid 1940s. The stories Aunt Eleanor tells of the ranch and the Stewarts were wonderful, although there were many that dealt with the harsh reality of living in the area. I wish we had been able to save the letters Aunt Eleanor shared with us from the Stewart boy she dated. For some reason, well into her 70's, she decided to burn all her correspondence from 'beaus' of her past. We never understood because her husband of 60+ years as died several years earlier, but I guess she felt the need to declutter. Thank you for posting the photos. I hope your preservation efforts worked out.

I am currently a professor at the University of Memphis; however, I previously was a professor at the University of Wyoming. I greatly appreciate the hardships and persistence of the pioneers of Wyoming. My ancestors in South Dakota lived similar lives.
