Sunnyslope Cemetery
I live right across the street from this cemetery & church it is bordered by School ST & Knowles RD. I see it listed as NW Pioneer by chance are you looking for the Cashmere Cemetery on Pioneer, hence why you are having locating this name?

RE: Lyle and Francis Baudin and Betty Lou Kroll
Yes, you are right, I'm new to this. Been doing some reading on the Howe Mine and the area. What a beautiful and interesting place.

Lyle and Francis Baudin and Betty Lou Kroll
I found an article printed Feb 22 1939. Spokane Review. page one left side
"Parents, Girl 7, Burned to Death"
"First Tragedy Hits Model Mining Town"
They were killed in a house fire at the Howe Sound mining town. The article also mentioned the accidental shooting death of Lyle's brother a few years earlier. I would put up the article on all of their memorials but I can't figure out how to download it.
Well, mystery solved. So sad, they had only become a family three months earlier.

RE: Lyle and Francis Baudin and Betty Lou Kroll
Great ideas. I will check them out. I suspect Baudin's were going there or were there looking for work. Census said his father worked as a watchman at a mine.
Thanks Doug in Tacoma

RE: Lyle and Francis Baudin and betty Lou Kroll
They were large poor family during the depression. There may have not been an obit. I pretty sure there would have been an article though. I think there was a rail line going to Holden at the time. Maybe that is part of the story . I can't imagine them taking the dangerous boat ride up to Holden in the middle of winter. I suspect the family was looking for work. I wonder if there was a CCC or WPA camp there. Do you know of a local historian? I've contacted a few libraries and museums in the area but haven't received any replies.
Thanks Doug
PS I am reviewing the Spokane papers, don't know the date it might have been was published so it's slow going.

Lyle and Francis Baudin and betty Lou Kroll
Hello, I was given your name by Teresa. I am researching the Baudin Family of Leavenworth WA. They moved there circa 1905-10
Three members died on the same day 2-21 -39 at Holden on lake Chelan. Lyle Baudin his new wife Francis and step daughter Betty Lou Kroll.
They are buried at Leavenworth North Road. I was wondering if you knew what happened to them. I haven't been able to find anything.
No other death dates match theirs at Lev. North Road Cem.
Thanks Doug in Tacoma

Memorials for Pearl and Jack Knepher

I was wondering if you could transfer the memorials for Pearl Florence Henck Knepher (#131513067) and Jack Thomas Knepher (#131513372) to me? They're my grandparents.

RE: 132998250
I see. I've had very good luck with the VA database. I've only found one error, but it turns out the veteran had a name change, so it was correct after all. I'm not related, just the guy trying to clean up Tahoma. I'm not sure what the best route is, but having the cemetery as unknown would probably be most appropriate. And he is linked to his first wife so we won't lose him. I have ~195 questions for this cemetery, so one less would be grand. Thanks for your help.
