December 6, 1911

Flo's Diary

Don't know what happened except Nell went sleighing to Fox with Mr. Brown. Met Bob Shelton as Marcella and I went to mail letters.

Or maybe better known as Bobby Shelton (as we grew up knowing him), moved to Fairbanks from Skagway in 1908. It was in Skagway where he built his first car and without having seen one. Sheldon later ventured with the first auto on the Valdez-Fairbanks trail. I can just image what a mucky trip that was! And he was also the first to bring a model "T" to Alaska.
