Walla Walla Graves
You have contributed info on two graves. You might want to add a little more information.

Find A Grave Memorial# 125229471
Find A Grave Memorial# 120966239

Susan Savage, 22, and Patrick Oliver (local Walla Walla boy), 21 were the first victims of the serial killer Robert Yates (now on death row at Walla Walla Petitionary).
In 1975 the young couple were picnicking on Mill Creek, near Walla Walla, when Yates happened upon them while practicing his target shooting in the same area.
Patrick Oliver was shot three times in the head before Yates turned on Susan and shot her twice.
Yates buried the couple's bodies under a pile of brush where they were found within days. Yet it took a further 25 years before the families of the couple would find out they were the first victims of a serial killer, when Yates admitted he was responsible for the murders.

Thank you very much for the transfer.
This will go a long way in getting some other memorials corrected.

BTW: I like your profile. It sounds like you enjoy your work and are easy to deal with.
So many folks cite FAQ's and why they WILL NOT do some thing.
Keep up the good work.
Mucho Gracias.

#6319265 Matt Baker
Matt Baker was my grandfather, Faye Baker (Jarmin) my grandmother. They had 7 children: Forrest A. Baker about 1919, Lynn Clayton Baker 1921 (my father), LLoyd G. Baker about 1923, Anna Helena Baker, About 1925, Vera F. Baker, about 1928, Lola Ruth Baker 1933, and Roy Elmo Baker 1935. All deceased except Lola. Faye was previously married to Long and had two additional children Harry Long and Ester Long. I have not traced this info yet.
Thank you for your work. Faye was indeed alive in the 1940 census in Silverton. I believe you are correct that she died 1941. The Baker homestead was just out of town. I have a hand written deed for the property.

Leta Price (1889-1955) #132905513
I am wondering if Leta is Margaretia Copaleta Clara Perrier Price aka Leta Perrier or Leta Price. She was the daughter of Agnes Ann Friece Perier (1868-1932) and Jeremiah "Jerry" Perier (1849-1935).

The information I find shows Leta was born August 19, 1892 in Oregon. She married John/Joseph P. Price who was born in 1872 in Iowa. I do not have dates for when they died but see you maintain a memorial for Joseph Price who died in 1921, #123905488, but he is not buried by Leta.

Do your records match any of this information?

Barbra Nuber Frahler
I think that you are right. I think that Katherina was his first wife (6252900). Peter Nuber, Sr. died in 1939, so I don't understand why she would have been living with her son, Peter, Jr. They all lived in Stillwater County (Park City, Mt) area. But, there wasn't a Catholic cemetery in the Park City area, so they buried him in Laurel, Mt, which is about 15 miles away in the Catholic cemetery there. So - if Katherina died in 1941, perhaps Barbara met Joseph right after that through that German newspaper and moved out there to marry him. Then, Barbara died in 1947, so Joseph wasn't with her long. It makes sense that he would have buried both of his wives in the same cemetery, and perhaps he met another woman and is buried next to her. Or - perhaps he is buried in between Katherina and Barbra, and no one made a memorial for him. Several of her kids lived and died in that area, (4 of them did), and the others moved back to Montana or never went with her. I so appreciate your trying to help me make sense of this. It is so confusing. Thank you so much! At least we have Barbra (#6252899) linked to Peter Nuber, Sr. (#14276576), her 1st husband, and the father of all of her 8 children. God bless! And thanks again! If I find out anything else, I will let you know.

THANKS KATIE BAPTISTE GARRISON for the transfer of Lena Alice Sophy Nestell's Find A Grave Memorial# 111926748 at Mountain View Cemetery, Walla Walla, Walla Walla County, Washington. I have been trying to connect family links of all the MARBLE descendants that I have in my database. I hope others will find ready accessible lineage and some heritage at I believe is more than just a big cemetery. THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP!

The headstone for Virginia is pretty worn and did not photograph well, but I was able to determine that "Routh" is the was the last name was spelled.

Thanks for your help. I am not sure it was in error as I cannot confirm exactly Ida's maiden name.

Myrtle Margaret Robson Reznicsek
On Myrtle's memorial 6325170 you have her mother listed as Margaret Salner. Any chance you might have where you got her name?

I have William Dell Robson married to Ida Mae Griner or possible Ida L Grimer/Grimes.

Thanks, Bill

RE: George Hoskins
George is in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census with his parents (1910) and Father and siblings 1920, 1930. Is there a headstone there or only cemetery records? Is it possible to to get copies of the record? Family members say he died on 1 January 1931 but no one knows where. He lived in Washington. His parents were Benjamin Jenkins and Salena Reader Hoskins. He was born 6 November 1909.
I think the error is in the death year. 1931 or 1932? Appreciate your help. Marilyn
