What and amazing photo, I wonder what it is for a jewel in his color, it look very interesting. I have a feeling a job like being a sheriff in the old days, most have been very hard and dangerous.How sad he died only 3 years after this photo was taken.

Thank you for sharing enjoy looking at your photo

Do you have a picture of the pavilions he built? Wouldn't it be great if you could add those to his profile!

I am in the process of trying to find some.

Thank you!

I am glad you asked this, because I spent a long time several months, ago, trying to find something about this on 'The LagoonPark' site.  This gave me a chance or the inclination to look, again.  Still nothing on the site, but I called the corporation and they have just printed a new book with much more history of Lagoon.  No guarantees, but I bought the book and should receive it in a week or so.  I'm sure someone out there has a picture, but I'm hoping there will be one in this book.

Thanks, Alta
All the best Alta, hope you can find one!
Still haven't found any pictures of the Pavillion(s).  Somewhere in our family pictures there must be one.  We had many picnics in them, but other members of my family have all the pictures.  The Lagoon book didn't include any.  I was really happy to recently receive the other picture of William that I posted, and also the one of my Aunt Lucille Karzis.  My niece sent them to me in an email.  Some other pictures Theodore, Edmund, Carrie, (Barnes) I ffound from  a message board.  I feel so fortunate to have them.
