Yesterday I purchased the an undated studio portrait of a young boy and a young girl taken by Oakland Studio. It is identified on the back of the mount in period handwriting:

"Mrs. Lizzie McKenzie
Sierraville
Cal.

Clarence Edward
and
Amy Henrietta Yarrington"

I also purchased a reprint of this photo in the form of a RPPC (Real Photo Postcard) (not postally used) with the name "Ruth." handwritten on the back.

I found the family listed in the 1920 and 1930 Census data for Sierraville (resided on Lincoln Street), Sierra Co., CA.
These individuals are also included in a Public Member Tree posted on ancestry.com. Amy is listed in the "California Death Index, 1940-1997."

Clarence Edward Yarrington, born about 1907 in CA, died 6 Nov 1926 in Sierraville, Sierra Co., CA, and Amy Henrietta Yarrington, born 4 Mar 1909 in CA, died 13 Jan 1985 in Calaveras Co., CA, were children of a teamster/sawmill logger, Raymond Edward Yarrington, born 8 May 1875 in CA, died 5 Jan 1962 in Oroville, Butte Co., CA, and Linna Dora Blatchley, born 18 Aug 1884 in Sierraville, Sierra Co., CA, died 29 Jan 1982 in Arnold, Calaveras Co., CA. Clarence died young. Amy married Jack Curtis Dolley, born 20 Jul 1910, died 27 Nov 1989 in Calaveras Co., CA.

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