England. It said that he had lived from 1905 to 1908 at Spokane, WA., he was a locomotive

My grandfather Owen Picton of Hiawatha, Kansas had a sister (Mary Hatch) who visited a cousin Lewis Picton at Spokane, WA who worked for the railroad as an engineer. The sister to my grandfather and her family were going to Alaska to prospect for gold. They made a rich gold strike but sold it cheap.
