In a letter to the editor published Dec. 10, 1992 in the Los Alamos Monitor, military veteran and local resident Fred Farnsworth wrote the following about war, faith and family:
“A little after midnight in the early morning darkness of the third day of the new year of 1929, dad left the little campground shack in Klamath, Calif. Mom was going into labor and it looked like the Klamath Indian midwife was going to need help in delivering the first white baby to be born in this town so a doctor was summoned from Crescent City, 40 miles away.
A heavy rain had closed the main highway with mud slides and turned the forest road into a muddy quagmire that required all the driving skill this 20-year-old father of two could muster to keep that old 1920 Dodge moving.
At the main road the doctor was waiting in his car and followed dad back along the winding, slippery ruts to the little shack were, at about 3 a.m., the Indian midwife held me up and declared "Him be lucky baby" and dad became the father of three.
