In 1950, Bertie wrote this into this diary: "Many changes have taken place in the Bitter Root since the 80s. Some for the better, some for the worse, but all things considered I believe I liked the old days the best when there was not so many people and every man stood on his own feet. Of course, we had to face many hardships, but we also had some advantages to offset them and I believe the people enjoyed life as well or better than they do now in this fast age."
His wife Finetta was a strong and independent woman, as this photo suggests.
Bertie lived until 1963, while Finetta lived until 1954.
