Summary In 1887, Ellen Kerr and her sister, Euphemia, left Campbelford, Canada for the west coast of California. Euphemia, her mother and two brothers that had met them in San Francisco, landed on Cuffey's Cove and came up the coast to Whitesboro where Robert Kerr was in the hotel business with Mr. Severance. Robert spent his life running a number of hotels between Navarro Ridge and Albion while the rest of the Kerr bothers found work in Whitesboro.
Denise Stenberg and her son, Michael, bring to light an era that is long passed when her great-uncles, the Kerr Boys, came to live and work on the coast.
This is the 23rd in a series of local history conversations taking place the 4th Sunday of the month at the Kelley House. This event took place on March 25, 2007.
