Judy, explain about who Elsie and Dewey were and what role they had in Dad's life
I'll let Judy do the family story about Elsie and Dewey, but I do want to remind everyone that in the archives of our blog, there is a modern connection to the ranch as it is today. The post office for the ranch was Painter, Wyoming. I always wondered where that name came from until I researched the 1920 U.S. Census, and discovered that there was a family with that last name who lived in the area. Perhaps they had the post office? Lots of history there.
