Catalog Number D.XXII.055
Caption Jean Soule Forrest
Description Portrait of Jean Burdon Soule, age seven months. Jean is sitting in an Indian basket woven by Julia Barkhousen. Julia Barkhousen was the daughter of the Samish Chief Sehoma. She and Barkhousen took a claim on March's Point around 1865. In 1878, the county prosecutor charged Henry with carnal knowledge and claimed that he had not wed Julia legally. Henry counter-argued that he was indeed legally married through a Native American ceremony and that all his children were therefore legitimate. The judge acquitted him of the charge.

(Later her married name was Forrest) See 2012.097.007 for Jean, as an adult, posing again in this same basket.
