Link has been made to Fannie. If you happen to have the marriage date of he and Minnie (1934)in the "family link edit" , it will put all the wives in order they were married to him. I put in the date he was married to Rhoda.

Margaret LeBeau Couture 107158121
I am wondering if you can help me with some information on Margaret LeBeau Couture. Your memorial. In Wikitree it shows that she was married to Stephen Couture but you list her husband as Etienne Couture. Can you tell me where this information came from?

RE: Daniel Axford
Sounds like a good idea to pull death certificate to be sure. Found his obit on my desk that I pulled on 1-25-2014 for Carla when looking for one on Ermil for her memorial at Mt. View Cemetery. Starts as: Daniel Clinton Axford, age 75, Oregon City, May 13; father of Mrs. Ermil Bingham Duncan, Oregon City etc. etc. I saw where he had already been put on Rivervierw Abbey Mausoleum site so just laid aside to take to the Family History Library next week when they are open once again. Daniel lived on my street still in 1958 and shown as a retired worker at the local mill and in 1962 as in Gladstone. Fun to have a lot of research books at home as can no longer volunteer at library.

No, I do not have proof of where Daniel died except that in 1940 Census he lived at 161 Linn Ave. and had for some years. I also live on this street further up the hill so know where the house is.

RE: John Milton Bolon
You're very welcome. You are correct about it being confusing as the early records are non existent.

The records for the Colfax Cemetery from 1873-1926 were destroyed in a wild land fire in 1926. The workers at the cemetery at the time, recreated the plot map book from memory, so it's quite likely that even though we may know someone is buried there, knowing exactly where they are, is another thing.

We have walked, shot, and posted a pic on findagrave of every tombstone there. Now we are working on adding back those people that had no tombstone, or had a wood one that was destroyed in the fire.

I have shot pics of the funeral records from 1873 through 1916 and am working on adding them back. It's often difficult because it doesn't always say which cemetery they were buried in, or the cemetery names are no longer used, or the name on the record is not the same name they were buried under, etc. Colfax is our default cemetery for those burials handled by Bruning, because of this it's best to search Whitman County, as we have the same issue with the cemetery records from Greenwood in Palouse.

The funeral records create a starting point; then I look for a death notice, obit, or other information, to go along with it.

Find a grave is such a great resource. However I always cringe a bit when someone tells me a cemetery is complete because they shot all the tombstones.

Unless one gets their hands on the records, they will leave out a whole lot of people, that no one will ever find.

Because I always work from actual cemetery records, I have learned that just because someone isn't listed in the official "records" does not mean they are, or are not buried in any certain cemetery, as the record keeping was atrocious.

RE: Beatrice Logsdon
Hi Anita,

Sorry, I misunderstood you. You were asking about John Elliott Knowles. This was only based on my assumption that they shared the same tombstone. Sorry about that. I guess we not know for awhile as the 1950's census won't be available for some time.

I do have his WWI draft card that does lists Agnes Ellen Knowles as the nearest relative. There is a grave memorial #:14017975 that shows a person matching that name in the same cemetery as the Logsdon family. I was able to find her maiden name is McGarvey and they married November 12, 1908. I would have to research more to see if I can find if they got married after their spouses both passed away, or if she's related some other way to John. I'll let you know once/if I find more information.

I'm actually related through her mother's sister: Catherine Isabelle (Kate) Hopkins who married John Pfrimmer Kenoyer (my 3rd great grand uncle). Let me know if you want more information on the Kenoyer side of the family as I have tons of information left by my grand aunt who was active on here before she passed away a few years ago.

RE: Beatrice Logsdon Edwards ??
Hi Anita,

Here is what I've found:

Here are the obituaries for her parents:

For her father, it lists her at Mrs. CHARLES M. EDWARDS. For her mother, it lists her as BEATRICE EDWARDS.

Washington, Marriage Records, 1865-2004
Lists that they married on February 24, 1923 in Spokane

Frankln Cooper
Keziah Hall Cooper, my 3rd great grandmother was married to Franklin from 1858 until her death in 1869. He subsequently remarried. Keziah's memorial is #131353251. I am attempting to get her name corrected from Keziah Hall Chamness to Cooper. Her first name was spelled various ways on various documents. Her burial record shows it as Kisanna but that was just another variation.
She was first married to Samuel Chamness but they separated after a short time. One child, Jemima, was born by their union; from whom I am descended. If this is a duplicate memorial, please tell me the number of the other one so I can make the proper connection. My aon, Neil, and I have placed a very nice marker on her grave in Yamhill, Oregon. I am not a relative of Franklin, but would appreciate being able to connect them on findgrave. Regards, George Vernon

Romaine Davis # 42567814
I noticed that you left a flower that you are related to the R. Davis family of Park Rapids. I want to let you know that I have the full newspaper story of the death if Romaine Davis. It was such a long and tragic story that I didn't post it to Find A Grave. If you are truly interested I could possibly scan it for you.
My email is public on my page so if you like send me an email.

Kaler Family Cemetery
Many thanks for creating the Kaler Cemetery. My wife and I used to live in Fulton County and had accidentally discovered this site several years ago. It was so isolated with undergrowth making it difficult to find. Once there we saw only stone marker which illegible so we never could pursue it. Recently, we did find a website for the John and Catherine Kaler family and determined this was where they and two children were buried.

Again, Thx!!

I have posted two photographs. She has no marker. In the first, there are two markers in the lower left corner her marker would be behind the second one back toward the tree. The second is shows the lot she is buried in; I have sent the plot location to the manager of the memorial.

RE: Enos Henderson
Hi Anita, I just received this message from you and I am really happy that you sent me this information about Enos Henderson! He is my grandfather and Emily Virginia was my grandmother. She died in 1936 from Scarlet Fever. My mom, Jo Ann Henderson, was taken out with her on a sled in the middle of the winter because it was the only they could get my grandmother and her out. My mom was in a hospital for over 2 months recovering from Scarlet Fever, which left her deaf from a mastoid infection.

My mom, along with her sisters was then raised by their grandparents, Jerusha Amanda McClain and Frederick Enos McCLain. Jerusha then married Charles Earl Burch after divorcing Frederick. Her sisters were Phyllis Henderson Neve, Mary Albert Henderson, deceased and one sister, still living, Violet Henderson Burch.
Would you be willing to send me a email address to get more information concerning my ancestors?

I look forward to hearing from you again.
Sincerely yours,
