Yesterday I wrote about my GGgrandfather John Franklin Puett and about his brother Robert Augustus Puett (Uncle Gus as my great-grandma Hollar used to call him).

So I searched the term “Robert Augustus Puett” (in quotes) and found a September 2009
news paper article from The Bulletin newspaper in Bend, Oregon. Uncle Gus started the first bakery in Bend called American Bakery and my cousins recently discovered an old “billboard” painted on a large boulder that has survived 80+ years.
Here is a link to the article complete with some neat photos:
