barbers in Chehalis, Jim Clampitt and Joe Reynolds
Hi Craig, I found your online posting listing Jim Clampitt as a barber in Chehalis. Joseph Coleman Reynolds is my father also a barber in Chehalis...

Recently I found this newspaper article about my father and has Jim Clampitt mentioned.


"OPENS NEW BARBER SHOP. J. C. Reynolds, one of the best known barbers in Chehalis, and who has been a resident of the city and worked at his trade for the past 14 years, is opening a modern barber shop in the Columbus block, on Boistfort street, at the rear of H. C. Coffman's office. He expects to be ready for business tomorrow, Saturday, if his equipment can be placed in time. Mr. Reynolds was for seven years in partnership in business in Chehalis with James Clampitt. He is an experienced barber, and advertises to do bobbing, marcelling, etc., specializes in children's hair cutting, and all other kinds of barber work."

My father was born in 1892 yet I am in my 40s. I am from his 3rd family. I have a copy of a barbershop photo that was posted in a Lewis County book sent to me by the Lewis County Historical Society under an interview by my Aunt Amanda (Reynolds) Strickland. It is on page 350 of
"The History of Lewis County, WA" Chehalis, Lewis County Historical Society, 1985. and it is possible that Jim Clampitt is in the photo with my father. Amanda dated the picture 1918 but I think it could be a few years after that.

I found you from your 2000 family tree posting...still working on how you are related to him but maybe through his daughter's husband's family??? by any chance do you have any pictures of Mr. Clampitt for comparison?

James Rice Clampitt, born January 27, 1895 in Morganville, Kansas; died March 25, 1945 in Lewis County,WA. I see that Jim Clampitt is buried in Section B of the Claquato Cemetery. JC Reynolds father, my grandfather (same name) is also buried there. take care! sincerely, Kristie

Steepy Family
Hi..I'm working on my daughter-in-laws family tree over at Ancestry. She's a Steepy. Samuel and Catherine were her 4th great-grandparents. You two must be related, but I have no idea how at this point. The tree is still a work in progress.

I have an account here as Toasterwoman. Any way we can contact each other?

Thanks for all the work you've done, it's been a huge help to me.

I am on Ancestry currently. I think it's a wonderful idea.

Jacob and Mary Peake left NJ and ended up in OH and the rest of them ended up in IN and OH.
I just started chasing the Mintles. When I saw all the Steepy/Mintle intermarriages and your name I was thrilled.
Are you willing to help me put together family groups?

Steepy/Mintle Families
Working on the Mintle side of my husband's family and found the Steepy family.

I have been doing family genealogy research for over 30 years.

Would you be interested in communicating?

RE: Charles Guy Bishop

Many thanks for the correction re: Cowlitz Landing. My error is inexcusable, really, not only because I pride myself on attention to detail, but because my Stephens and Mayes ancestors have lived in Lewis County (Lincoln Creek, Centralia) since the 1860s. I should have known better.

Charles Guy Bishop

Many thanks for your beautiful photography. Your excellent work is a credit to the Find A Grave site.

Unfortunately, after viewing your wonderful photos, I discovered that another contributor had created a memorial earlier for Charles Bishop, who was my great-grandfather. I have contacted her and asked for either a transfer of the memorial to me, or, if she prefers, a merge of my more substantial information to her memorial followed by a deletion of my duplicate.

In any event, I want you to know that I much appreciate the terrific work you did.
