10. Lumbermanís Monument Marker
Here is a photo that has been in my family for a long time, and I would like to share it with everyone else. I was told that one of the people in the statue is supposed to be related to me somehow, but I have not been able to find anything out. The person on the right looks somewhat like the person in the middle of the statue, but I don't know any names of anybody in the statue or the photograph.
