Photo from a postcard mailed from Camas in 1915
Written on the back of the photo - "Frank Shelt Family home Grandma"
I am a great-great grandson of Frank Shelt and I am writing to you for a number of reasons. First, I am curious if you are relation to Frank Shelt in any way. I am also curious if you would happen to have any more pictures you'd like to share. My family is aware of Frank's life from birth here in Ohio to his trip out west to Camas. We know very little about his life in Camas, other than the basics such as his death and his line of work. If you have any knowledge or pictures you would like to share, my family and I would be most grateful. We can, in turn, provide you with facts about the Shelt family that he's from in Ohio if you are interested. I was so surprised to find these two pictures you have posted, as nobody in my family has ever seen them. They were truly a great find! I am really looking forward to hearing from you!!
I stumbled on this while surfing and wanted to comment because my name is Glen Shelt and my father was born in Canton, Ohio but we all live in Florida. I thought it was pretty interesting as I have never encountered any other Shelts before and it seems to be a fairly uncommon name.
Sorry, not related. I bought this postcard and one other that I believe is also the Shelt family years ago with a bunch of other postcards (and no longer have them). The other one is at:
I think those were the only two that were of the Shelt Family or from the Camas area.
Glad you found the photo!!!
Best of luck in your search.
