Seeking descendants of Shigemi & Chizuko Uyeda...

Updated: 4/21/15 Family relative has been found!

Received this message on Facebook  from our friends 
at the Minidoka Pilgrimage Planning Committee:

 
Apr 19th, 3:16pm

     Was wondering if anyone is familiar with this Poston family.... Shigemi and Chizuko Uyeda [Poston block 19]... They were from Lancaster CA... Son Theodore passed in 1991 in San Diego. Has two daughters names unknown right now... 
     The Rago Auction protest has brought a cool item of of hiding.... A photography trophy from 1925 to who we believe to be Shigemi. It was awarded from Iwata business... I know possessions from prewar times are rare and Shigemi would go on to being a well known early CA Nikkei photographer.... The person who has it would like it returned to the family. Thanks if you can help. Any contact help would be appreciated.
