With the new purchase of our home on Fairmont Drive in Burley, Cassia, Idaho, I thought I would throw out a strange connection I have to the street. Fairmont Drive turns into Fairmont Avenue at a 90 degree turn just a block or two east of our home. Within a long stone-throw of our present house sits the home my grandparents, Norwood & Colleen Jonas, lived in when they moved to Burley in 1968 from Richmond, Cache, Utah. In all my photos, I happen to have some pictures of that home.
I am not clear if they had the home built or if it was newly built when they arrived and purchased it. It is my understanding the home was completed in 1969, which is supposedly the year after they moved to Burley.
Lastly, I will wrap up with a family portrait taken in the front room of the home. This one was in an album and the quality is low, hopefully some day I can find a higher quality photo.
The coincidental aspect of this whole post is that a Jonas relative now lives in the home, some 45 years later. Denise Andersen Olsen, niece to my Grandfather (my first cousin, once removed), now lives in the home. Maybe if she will give me permission, I can take a current photo or two of the home. Maybe I can do a then and now post of the photos I have. Maybe even one day, I can get the people in the photos for a then and now too…
