I have an old photo of a couple named Ernest Kemp and Mildred (she was the sister of Henry Schwartz). I would be happy to send it, if any family is interested in it.

Unfortunately his son Ernest died in 2000. But I bet there are grandchildren.

Ernest Kemp was my uncle. My Dad Kenneth was his brother. The "box company" was actually Weryhouser. I would love to have the photo!

I'm a nephew of the Kemps, my dad, Bud Swartz, was Mildred's brother. He worked at Miles City Saddlery until 1955 as a saddle maker and stamper then the family moved to Missoula. My grandparents Henry G. and Nora had 8 children, Henry George, who was KIA in WW2, Donald, who was electrocuted on the Ft. Peck Dam project. Then I think next was Edward, Mildred, Mabel, Gladys, Bud and June. The Kemp's lived in Portland and we had a family reunion of sorts in 1963.
