I purchased the subject photos along with other related Orcutt photos.

The first photo depicts two preteens standing together in front of a multistoried shingled house. It is identified on the back in period handwriting:

"Aug-8th 1915"

More recent handwriting below this reads:

"Grace & Helen Orcutt


The second photo, printed on an undated, divided-back RPPC (Real Photo Postcard) (not postally used) depicts a group of 17 women plus a preteen girl, and is identified on the back in recent handwriting:

"Helen Orcutt
front row right
Lolo Orcutt- far right"

Grace Orcutt, born 24 Nov 1903 in IA, and Helen Orcutt, born 1904 in IA, were daughters of a farmer turned bank president, George Henry Orcutt, born Jun 1871 in IA; and Lola M. Shaw, born about 1875 in IA. I found the family listed in the 1910 and 1920 Census data for Fairview Township, Monroe town (resided on Lincoln Street), Jasper Co., IA; the 1920 Census data for Long Beach (resided at 411 East 8th Street), Los Angeles Co., CA; the 1925 Iowa State Census data for Jasper Co., IA; and the 1930 Census data for Fairview Township, Monroe town, Jasper Co., IA.

Grace married a lawyer, Clyde B. Charlton, born about 1899 in OH. The couple had two children--Ann, born about 1927 in IA; and Clyde Henry, born 31 Aug 1929 in IA, died 23 May 1985 in Alameda Co., CA.

At the time of the April 1930 enumeration, Helen was a 26-yr-old single woman employed in the Advertising Dept. of Marshall Field, residing with her parents.

Contact me if you wish to view and/or acquire these photos.
