Cheney - Fine Art Prints of Historical Photos
Eston, the oldest of the three, was the operator of Cheney's Art Gallery in Oregon City from 1895 to 1901. Shortly after he sold his business to William Snodgrass in 1902, the youngest, Edith, opened her own Oregon City gallery.
Ethel, who was already listed as a photographer in the 1900 Oregon City census, became a partner with photographer Bessie Krumm in McMinnville in 1905. She may have worked earlier in Portland at the Imperial Gallery and at Lewis and Krumm. Krumm was rooming with the Cheney family in Oregon City in 1900.
I've been unable to find any references after 1907 to any of the four working in Oregon as photographers.
