down a dirt road
I barely remember
how deep I must go
into this canyon
to find the river

Household #21 - Luella LACHER

This is the last of those I refer to as "family dwellings".  The rest of the dwellings in River Portal are boarding houses and those will be much more difficult for me to share research on.  I'm not sure yet how I'm going to do that - but I'm definitely going to tackle the challenge! 

This last one isn't really a "family".  It's one single lady - a school teacher.  I was able to find her with her family before she moved to River Portal.  While researching I noted that her sister Olga had married someone in Montrose so it's possible that the family was in that area.  I surmise that the reason I haven't found anything further on Luella / Lulu was that she probably married and not knowing who her spouse was I hit a brick wall.  I have very little to offer on her.  I hope someone comes across this information and can fill in some blanks.  As we sit here now it's hard to imagine that there was once a schoolhouse here -- and my grandpa and his sister attended it.  Luella was likely their teacher.
