"HARRIS Family of Oklahoma"
These two photos of the HARRIS family are in the care of Jerry Huffman of California, and were found in his father's possessions after he passed away. I am posting them here in an effort to help him find the family they belong to. The photos are enclosed in a single paper folder, with no photographer's marks or location found. In ink, the words "Harris Family of Okla" are inscribed on the folder, with the name "Buford" added faintly above in pencil.
Jerry's father Buford "Huff" Huffman (see photo below) left home around age 15 (circa 1930-1931), and met this family in the early 1930's when he went to find work in the oil industry in Texas and Oklahoma. He must have known the family fairly well to have been gifted this photo of them.
But the question remains - who are these Harris people?
BUFORD MILTON HUFFMAN has a wonderfully detailed memorial, created by his son, at Findagrave which shows much useful information.https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/11330067/buford-milton-huffman
The paper-trail shows that Buford had returned to New Mexico and was residing in Santa Rosa by 1935.
1935 - Santa Rosa NM (per 1940 Census)
1940 - Santa Rosa NM Federal Census.
1943 - Santa Rosa NM for WWII draft registration. Discharged Jan 1946.
1959 - appears in San Diego city directory.
Does anyone out there recognize the people in the two upper photos? I welcome your help.
