Rose Uptegrove Moody

My grandmother was born in Kansas. Along with her parents and 11 brothers and sisters
she moved to Oregon City, Oregon in the first decade of the 20th century.  She was selected
to reign as Queen of Oregon City Booster Day in 1916.  This honor qualified her to
represent Oregon City as a princess on the Portland Rose Festival Court that same year.
