Christian Dethman, b. 1855, d. 1938, was married to Emma Jetter, b. 1866, d. 1954. Their first four children were Frank, b. 1885; Herman, b. 1888; Anna, b. 1890; and Alfred, b. 6 March 1892. It looks like the photo was taken 1892.

I know where Dethman Ridge is. I assume the farm was/is in that area?

My mother was born and grew up on Dethman Ridge. Wonder how far this was from her parent's ranch.

I thought I had posted this on another Dethman photo page, but couldn't find it. Chris Dethman's brother John, settled in my area of Glenwood/Camas Prairie. Emma Jetter was working for John when she met his brother Chris. They were married and moved to the farm that Chris had started in Hood River.

The homestead in the picture went to Frank. Herman's place was just to the southwest, which is behind the photographer.
