Last week we shared a picture of two boys shooting off a dock. One of the boys was Edward Ferry. The 1940 Census for Boundary County lists Edward living with his father CO Ferry, mother Edal Ferry and brother Allen. We will assume this is Allen in the picture. Checking the old yearbooks, Edward graduated from Bonners Ferry High School in 1945.
