I recently purchased the subject studio portrait of a teenage girl taken by Ganter, Napa, CA. It is identified on the back of the mount in period handwriting:

"Florence S. Lubben.
May 22, 1914.

Graduation from grammar school."

This individual appears in a public member tree posted on She is included in the California Death Index, 1940-1997. She is listed in the 1900 Census data for Alameda (resided at 1620 Webster Street), Alameda Co., CA; the 1910 Census data for Napa (resided at 536 Pine Street), Napa Co., CA; the 1920 Census data for Coombs Precinct (resided on Wild Horse Valley Road), Napa Co., CA; and the 1930 Census data for Oakland (resided at 5326 Edith Street), Alameda Co., CA.

Florence Sherwood Lubben, born 24 Jul 1898 (birth year of 1899 was recorded by the 1900 enumerator) in CA, died 5 Nov 1954 in Sonoma Co., CA, was the daughter of a livery stable worker/farmer, George D. Lubben, born Apr 1869 in Hannover, Germany (immigrated 1886), and Kate C. Jarvis, born May 1876 in CA. Florence had a younger sister, Anita A. Lubben, born about 1903 in CA.

In about 1920, Florence married an automobile/real estate salesman, Carryl Harbaugh Chamberlain, born 5 May 1898 in WA, died 8 Feb 1984 in Sonoma Co., CA. The couple had a daughter, Constance M. Chamberlain, born about 1924 in CA.
