Thank you very much for adding the links to her parents.

Thanks for pointing out the wrong photo! I'm sorry I missed it. I removed it and replaced it with the correct one. Thanks again. Annie
|Deb||RE: Ida Gibson|
Ida is not on the census record with her son in Idaho in 1920. Her Idaho death certificate says she died in Twin Falls Idaho on the 17th, the Elma paper on Jan 29 said her body arrived back in Elma on Jan 22 so that is why the delay in burial. The census states her son lived in Twin Falls and I just sent that because it explains why Ida might have been there when she died. Sometimes sending lots of bits of information is confusing but I wanted you to see the whole picture.
There are lots of other interesting bits to her story such as she is on the 1910 census in Oregon and Washington because her move north was between the 2 census dates. The best advice I have heard, I guess, is keep it simple and accurate so that is why I would remove the census information and add the brief description, if it were my choice.
Thanks again for your findagrave work. It makes me happy to see my family reunited.

The census in 1920 census in Twin Falls doesn't show Ida living with her son Harry. The fact that he was living in Idaho is the reason that her death was recorded in Idaho rather than Washington and explains the article on page 1 of the Elma chronicle 1/29/1920 about her being brought back to Elma. How about we change the description to this,"Ida was in Twin Falls Idaho at the time of her death, where her son Harry had moved. Page 1 of the Elma Chronicle 1/29/1920 reports her being brought back to Elma for burial."?

Thank you Z.
You do a fine job managing the site and I appreciate your scrutiny of information someone might want to add to the site. I only put the documents up for your information and I don't see such things on most sites so I will delete them. The same goes for Harry's census data which someone looking at Lucy might not care about, though I will be happy to see his name on this page. I was privileged to know uncle Harry and he had wonderful stories about the Oklahoma land rush of his youth.
Thanks again for your work with findagrave.

Thank you for your generous help. I visited CS Gibson's Elma site a few years ago when I realized where it was. I sent you the obit for Ida and CS to Mr Yates. This is my first experience contributing to findagrave and both of you are patient and kind teachers. Thank you for taking care of my g grandparents before I got here.
Harry A Gibson's (the son referred to in both obits) findagrave number is 59843907 in Twin Falls Idaho. The location was mentioned in Ida's obit. Lucy Humphrey a daughter mentioned in CS obit is also in Twin Falls Idaho at Sunset Memorial Park with her husband Edwin Humphrey (I have obits and have visited there) but I don't see them on findagrave. I will get back to you if I can fix that.

I had no clue that a relative from Finland was buried in Washington state. My last remaining uncle recently died and I am just starting to learn about my family in Finland after going through my uncle's old letters. Facebook has been a gift in reaching out to my newly found relatives.
We plan a trip to the South Bend Cemetery this coming weekend and wonder how difficult it will be to locate August's grave. Any help you can give would be appreciated. We will be driving down from Port Townsend. Thanks for doing this for all the families trying to piece together their past. RIP August Nordman

|Kid From Point||Thanks!|
I appreciate having Sarah LINKed to the family. Thank you so much!
|Jenny E.||RE: Elizabeth Dudley|
You're welcome! I photographed all of the markers that were in that lot that didn't already have photos posted. I also created a memorial for Winston Mansfield Dudley 1912-1973.There was a marker for him in that lot but couldn't find a memorial for him on this site. If you are family, I would be glad to transfer to you, if you'd like.

|Bob Collins||Charles Hamlin Blake in Green-Wood|
Good news. I have found Charles Hamlin Blake and many of the individuals named in the bio on his page. The problem I had was solved when I realized that he was listed in the cemetery's burial database not as Charles Blake--but as Hamlin Blake, buried July 25 1901. I am about to upload the grave photos--but there are no stones. The Blakes are entombed in an impressive mausoleum. Blakes there are (with burial dates):
Alice, 9/23/1882; Ames C, 10/14/1874; Rev, James (ashes), 6/21/1926; Charles Dudley, 8/15/1883; Elizabeth D, 2/6/1885; Frederick D, 3/27/1905; Hamlin (Charles Hamlin), 7/25/1901; Helen, 7/19/1955; Lyman Dexter, 2/13/1854; Mary E, 12/28/1917; and William E, 12/28/1858.
