Does anyone have photos (or other documented information) of McFadden, Wyoming they'd be willing to share? It was a company town for the Ohio Oil Company (now Marathon Oil).

My father's family lived in McFadden for several years, when he was a boy. He went to school there. For a time, his mother ran the cookshack. My uncle married someone who lived nearby. My grandfather, uncle, and father all worked for the Ohio.

We have no family photos from that time, but the McFadden years were a big part of my dad's life. Dad was back there in the late 1980s and said nearly everything -- house, store, cookshack, etc. -- is gone. I'd like to know what it looked like in the 1930s.

Thanks. =)
