Yakima Chief Jobe CharleyWlliam MacMurtrie
I have two paintings signed 'E . Lochrie. One is of Jim Bridger (4×6), on brown paper. The second is of a man with an Eagle headdress, with otter tails.It's painted on copper. I turned over the second painting it states that this is Chief Jobe Charley, a Yakima Indian.Painted in 1960 in Sheridan, Wyo. It was during an Indian council, and that Chief Jobe died of pneumonia later that year. This picture is (8×10). My folks bought them in Denver in 1962. (Note the older spelling of 'yakima')
Lochrie I ownMartha Downs
Friends of ours, sometime in the 50's, living in Butte, gave us a painting of Mrs. Lockrie's, an Indian on Copper. Having it framed, the description of course was and is covered. I also have an original copy of where The Butte Silver Bow Arts Chateau had a showing of her work July-August 30, 1987. From this it reads "The Blackfeet Indians inducted her into their tribe giving her the name of Net-chi-ta-ki; "Woman Alone In Her Way. Of course it has her picture on the front and lists the pictures on display at that time.
Two Paintings -1949Pam Babbitt
Trying to get information on two large oil paintings done by E Lochrie back in 1949. She personally put the -14 brand symbol on the horse and cow in each painting. My Grandfather knew her personally. I would love any information you could provide. One painting is a cowboy sitting against a rock playing the harmonica with his horse standing near. The other is an Indian squaw with her hand over her mouth because she has just butchered a cow. The ranch owner is standing there with a gun in hand along with two Indian men. Let me know if you know anything about these paintings. Thank you very much
Elizabeth Davey LochrieCatherine M. Condeff
Hello. I am Catherine M. Condeff, daughter of Ann Davey Condeff. I am Ms. Lochrie's great niece. I would like some verification of my Great Aunt's acceptance into the Blackfeet (Blackfoot?) tribe. She was also chosen to be Montana's "Woman of the Year."
Sorry I don't recall what year that was.
My birthday is May 30th, 1956--San Jose, California. William R. Condeff--the "inventor" of Smokey The Bear, is/was my father.
I believe that Aunt Sis, as we called her, was my grandfather's sister. His name is/was: Joseph James Davey.
Any information you can send me regarding my personal affiliation with the Blackfeet tribe, would be greatly appreciated. And I am forever confused as to whether or not this particular Montana tribe is called Blackfeet or Blackfoot. Please set me straight on this.
Thanks in advance...Catherine M. Condeff
P.S.--I am also an artist...and I would be happy to email you a copy of my drawing called "The Chief" in return for any information you can send me. CMC

I have the above titled picture which is 11.5"x 13"in very good condition.
My Grandmother lived in Deer Lodge and was a friend of Ms. Lochrie. I can remember going to her house/studio on one occasion and remember the paintings.
