RE: Lucy Crowell photo
You're welcome! I live quite nearby, and her marker was actually where the map indicated it was. I'm making an effort to help everyone who has requests in this historic cemetery, but finding them is not always so easy and the map is a wreck. I'm glad I could give you the picture of Lucy's headstone. I know that even though the years may separate us, it is still important to some of us. :)

Thanks for the document. It proves the burial. Too bad my grandmother and great aunt, (Ann Ryan) apparently did not have the funds for a marker. I am surprised with his military service, my great uncle was not afforded a proper memorial. I appreciate your follow through on this as I am very interested in genealogy. If you have any other records or suggestions, I would be equally appreciative. Mike Bowen

RE: Idaho obituaries

Obituaries from the Idaho Statesman (Boise paper) are indexed 1961-present and Ruby is in there. However, I was wondering if you could give me a list of those you want so I don't have to make so many trips to the library?

Here is a link to the obituary index:

For example, I put in Yorgason and came up with a bunch. Do you want all of them? When the death is prior to 1961 or in another paper I need to go the state archives instead. I wouldn't be able to get there again until next Saturday probably.

Anyway, let me know if there are others and I'll try to get to them as soon as possible. Also, will need your email addy to send copies.

RE: Idaho obituaries

The newspapers on microfilm at the Idaho State Archives go back a long ways. The Boise paper, goes back to before 1900.

However, back in the 1930s, not too many families in Boise area had what we consider obituaries published in the paper. Rather the newspapers took it upon themselves to report life events. Deaths due to tragic events or prominent people often made the front page back then. Little articles because the news of the day was the World War.

Anyway, I dropped in at the library today on my lunch break to look up your Joseph Yorgason. I was unable to locate any notice of death per se in either the Nampa or Boise newspapers. I did find an article in the Nampa paper published 2 days after his passing where it is mentioned that he passed recently. The article implies it may be due to a whooping cough epidemic.

Titania, thank you ever so much for the beautiful photos of Elizabeth's and Frank's headstones. You helped solve a huge mystery in our family, just by those 2 photos! My family appreciates YOU so much! May your God Bless You and Yours!

RE: Schlick photos
You're welcome, Titania! I wanted to tell you something about what I saw at the cemetery, since it was so striking! Clearly there are a bunch of relatives buried together, across a couple of adjacent lots. They all had the same lovely Christmas greenery decorations on their graves. The names were Schlick (with a "k", although there's an "h" in Mabel's and Emory's memorials), Tregay, Plass, Crowell and Montgomery. I've added photos and I think one new memorial for any that weren't already on findagrave. Perhaps you already know about these folks. If not, let me know and I'll send you the specific names and who is buried by whom. Take care, Amy

RE: Joseph Carrol Henrie info
You're welcome! Good to know Joe has a relative who remembers him. I have a copy of his death certificate, but it doesn't indicate where (or if) his ashes were buried.

I added the information you suggested. Were William, Harriet and Thomas Hogan also previously buried at Wesleyan, since they were all buried at Bellefontaine on 26 May 1892?

William Henry McIntire
Research on Beulah Belle Derby led me to one of her husband's William Henry McIntire. On the website, if you insert his name, and his birth date, his correct death date comes up along with a death location of Aberdeen, Grays Harbor, WA. If you are still researching his line, maybe that will provide a clue to finding where he's buried.

Cecelia Tregay
Hi Titania, thanks for the message.

I cannot find Cecelia's letters at this time but I am almost certain that her middle name was included in her own information. It is a very unusual name and I would not know its origin. If you are in contact with any of her children perhaps they could help you.

Hope you are doing ok.

Sayre Beach
So you know, I looked up his death date up on this website, he died in Ashtabula, OH. Here is the website address. It is quite helpful! I typed in his name and then Ashtabula, OH. (Not Ashtabula, Ashtabula, OH) and it pulled up his death record.

I am thrilled to tell you I found Caroline Beach and I also found Sayre Beach, they are buried together. He died September 23, 1873. He is not listed on the cemetery site, and I do not understand it cause his stone is in great shape considering how old it is. Also, there were several Merriams directly across from Caroline and Sayre. Most of the stones had no dates or names, just 2 had names. Charles and then another one for Clara. I could not read the rest of the stone. I took pictures if you wish to have them? The other stones said, "Grandfather", "Grandmother", "Father" & "Mother". Then there was Charles and then the other stone, which was different than the others for Clara. Let me know if you want them, I will send them to you.

RE: Thank you! Mary Cole Keyes Grant photo
We did look for her, but we were not able to find, but, we also could have looked in the wrong area. We can try again at a different date. My friend remembers seeing the maiden name, so I wonder if she is buried with them? The map we are using is not very clear.
There were 8 people buried at the Grant plot. I added pictures to the memorials you had listed, and I also created memorials for the rest. Lena Grant, Mary J. Glancy, Mary Viets Grant, and Henry Grant. Let me know if you are able to find them. If you wish to have management, let me know!

Edward Saffin
Titania, I made the changes to Edward's Memorial that you suggested.

I am not related to The Saffin line, that I know of. If they are in your family line I will be glad to transfer them to you.

I live near Laurel Cemetery and have family there so I have added some of the folks from that cemetery.

RE: Fred and Eva Shaw
Thanks so much! I think that there are more Shaws and DePoys there in that mausoleum that are related to me. If you see anyone with the DePoy name, snap a photo for me, they are all related.
Thanks again,

Oliver H. Saffin
You sent me a SAC for O.H. Saffin saying his dob was April 18, 1837, but the death certificate shows April 18, 1831. What do you have that shows the year 1837? Also, do you know the history of Lara?

RE: Thank you
Hello and happy holidays!
My father and his brother were born in rampart alaska to parents of the 1898 gold rush.
Thank you for sharing my fathers stone and history with me and others. Did you do the write up about where he worked and lived on the site. I was amazed about that information and curious
who had the information about him. I wanted to personally thank them. So if it is you then Thank You!!

Today my sister and I will go there and leave tiny live christmas trees on my fathers and mothers graves and later plant them on her property. we do this every year for as long as I can remember. Some of these little trees are over ten feet high. We live in sonoma and Glen ellen.Seeing the growing of these little trees give us
much happiness.
Thank you and God Bless you for your thoughtfulness
and I will try to take over the site but I don't know if I could do as well a you have.
fondly, Pamela wingate Landry
