In Reply to: Fountain, Veneta by Elizabeth Clarke of 676

Hi Elizabeth,

I do not know of a Veneta Fountain. However I do know of an Edna Fountain. I have a story she wrote titled My Life (about 9 pages typed) and from that I have gleaned the following.

Her Grandparents were James Fountain and Matilda
Father: John William Fountain b. 6 Nov 1865 Harrisburg, OR
Mother: Salinda A. Paxton b. 3 Mar 1873 Sandusky, OH

Edna was b. 11 Mar 1894 Cedar Flat or Leaburg, OR
Siblings: Bessie, Lee, Mary, Jack, Ervin and Carrol. Edna also mentions an aunt Emma Kennerly (her Dad's sister).

No idea if there is a relation but if you are interested I can scan a copy of the story and email it to you. Just let me know.
