The gathering of the pioneers included Lt. to Rt.(adults): Ursula B. Good, Bernice Davis, Edith Parker, Ernie Swanson, and Rev. Good. Lt. to Rt. (children): youngest Good boy, smallest child believed to belong to John and Bernice Davis, child in middle and behind unidentified, Glen Parker, "Freddie" Good, and John Good (both Good boys in white hats).
The Goods had just arrived in Strawberry Point the year before (1916) and had stayed temporarily in the John Davis house (the Honeymoon Ranch) as John and Bernice Davis, with their new child, were spending most of their time in Juneau.
The Davis' (having arrived in Strawberry Point in late June 1914 with their friends the Taggarts & the Henrys) were in and out of Strawberry Point infrequently at this time, and their plans were uncertain.
Abraham and Edith Parker had arrived just earlier by months and were devoting all their time (with some help from son-in-law Bill White who was visiting for the summer months, but with help mostly from Taggart river neighbor Joe Simpson according to Glen Parker) to erecting a small section of the house (that would eventually become their much larger homestead) in time for the winter. Abraham was employed weekdays in Excursion Inlet at Kane's Mill and cutting lumber to support the construction.
Ernie Swanson (a fisherman) had arrived as a "drifter" of sorts in about 1915 and assisted the Henrys with the planting, harvesting and transporting of the bounty from their vegetable fields. Some of these trips of goods to the outside were met with disasters, and whole harvests of rutabagas were lost. Ernie had a good friend "Buck" O'Leary who also was in and out of Strawberry Point at about this time and helped him build a small place of his own that would much later be called the "Bear's Nest" and be the transient home of Bill & May White and family. Ernie was here and there for awhile but was full time at the "Gunk Hole" (Elfin Cove) in a fish buying venture by the late 20's.
The Goods left the "Point" for good in 1919 when Rev. Good became Killisnoo's new school teacher. Of the group pictured here, only the Abraham Lincoln Parker family remained at Strawberry Point, Alaska. As of this year (2007) many residents of the "Point" are A. L. Parker descendants.
