    Two Updates based on Rick Cook’s ongoing PO Tribune research:

    1.) Beecher Jess may not have moved to Port Orford until about 1906. Therefore Houses #9 and #10 could not have been built by him. House #9 had been built for the Nielsens, then in 1911 Mary Nielsen trades that house to Beecher Jess.

    2.) The other House, number 10, is almost for sure a Nielsen House. At the time of this photo, Mary Nielsen owned the whole block. It is likely house number 10 was built in 1906 with no connection to Beecher Jess.
