The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (commonly known as Rhode Island) is geographically the smallest state in the United States, and the state with the longest official name. Rhode (pronounced "Road") Island is part of the New England region, and was one of the thirteen original American colonies that declared independence against British rule to begin the American Revolution.
I was born in Timber, Oregon on October 13, 1959, within a cabin along the creek near the main bridge creek crossing. The hillside above the cabin is a Post-Office building then the railroad. I am looking for photos of that time period: Joseph Allen Wigle, BSS, GCM. The Wigle families came on the Oregon Trail in 1852 and were landholders in the Brownville OR area.--Submitted by Joseph Allen Wigle
