Iman family notes

 

The Imans and related families meet in a public park in Stevenson, Washington each year for a great reunion. Here's an example of what happens when the Imans, Moores, Shawcross, Bevans, Tritto, Woodward, and Manning clans get together with the Hydukes, Alberts, Browns, and Ruby families.

Flora Adalia Iman was born March 24, 1856 at the Upper Cascades (Stevenson, Washington). She was long the oldest living native daughter of Skamania County and is thought to be the first white child born in the county. She married a Norwegian by the name of Charles Morgan at seventeen, and later decided she'd be happier with Ira Foster, (an Iowa transplant) with whom she had seven children. She was a housewife, a good piano player, made great homemade noodles and patchwork quilts. She died as Mrs. Flora A. Nix. in 1949 shortly after her 93rd birthday
