You sent an edit on Charles Gaston James saying=

FYI---Per Oregon's death record he died at Sherman, Washington, OR.

What death record are you referring to? Hmmmm. Maybe you were holding the death record upside down or read the wrong line or something? Just kidding.
There is no town anywhere in the entire state of Oregon named Sherman. There is only a county in Oregon named Sherman County.
I thought then maybe you meant the town of Washington in Sherman County but that did not seem right. I checked that angle and there is no town anywhere in the entire state of Oregon named Washington. Only a county named Washington County. OK? I have lived in Oregon all my life so I know a little bit about the place. Not everything by any stretch of the imagination.
I looked around and tried to figure out where the heck I got the idea from that Charles died in Portland. There are a few files on that claim Charles died in Portland and that is all I can figure where I got the idea from.
I checked the State of OR death index myself and it says Charles died in Sherman County, Oregon, not Washington County.
I looked for a funeral notice for him in the paper and found one but it was not much help. I added it to his page anyway. It said he was a resident of Portland, I know from the address it says he was living at because that address is not very far from me where I live here in Portland.
One thought would be that possibly someone made a mistake on the death record you have or else he was on a trip somewhere and actually did die clear over in Sherman County and they carted him all the way back over here to Portland to be buried??
I have a pretty good idea that is probably the case since in those days they did not wait around to bury anybody. Par for the course was they buried somebody the very next day after they died. Charles died on the 27th and they did not bury him clear until the 31st! That would probably be due to them having to get him all the way back to Portland from North Central Oregon where Sherman County is. That would be a very long trip in 1912. The roads were not all that good in those days. They could not just jump on the freeway and race over here.
What do you think? Am I in trouble? :-] Did you read your "death record" right?

Charles Dishong
Hello, I noticed that you put a flower on s memorial and wrote r.i.p cousin.
My second great grandmother, was Charles' sister Margaret Dishong whom married, Hugh Dillon in 1879. They are married in Indiana in 1880 census. On ACGSI website a marriage lic for Margaret and Isaac Herring
I can't seem to find a death nor divorce from Hugh Dillon. A directory of 1883 Wayne township has a Hugh Dillon listed on Heritage Quest. --1900 census has Isaac Herring his wife married seven yrs . On ACGSI court records for their divorce. . 1920 census Margaret is living in the household of Charles and Hattie Dillon, my great grandparents. I have no other information on her after that. Do you have any information?
Just recently on ACGSI I have found a marriage license for Laura Dillon, which listed her parents as Hugh Dillon and Margaret Dishong, until then , I didnt know Charles Dillon had a sister. Any information that you could share would be a great help. On my Dishong line

William H. Speers

I have a memorial page for a William Harlan Speers that you had provided some information on, while suggesting that the family information be verified. A family member contacted me regarding this William H. Speers.

There are two William H. Speers, both of whom resided in Hardin County at one time. The other William Hale Speers, born the same year, is buried in Iowa Falls, Hardin County, Iowa.

The 1900 and 1910 US censuses for Eldora, Hardin, Iowa record William H. and Daisy as residents, while the 1910 US census for Hardin, Hardin, Iowa records William H. and Sylvia as residents.

The 1920 US census for Cedar Falls, Black Hawk, Iowa record Harlin, Daisy and Rachel as residents at 1508 Main Street. The 1925 Iowa census for Cedar Falls, Black Hawk Records W.H., Daisy and Rachel as residents at 1508 Main Street.

The 1920 US and 1925 Iowa censuses for Hardin, Hardin, Iowa record William H./Hale, Silvia/Sylvia, Frank, Beatrice, Clara, Mahlon,Hal, George, Elnor and Blanche as residents. No street address is listed.

The 1930 US census for Cedar Falls again records William H., Daisy and Rachel as residents at the 1508 Main Street address, while the 1930 US census for Hardin, Hardin, Iowa records William H., Sylvia, Frank, Hal, George, Elnore and Blanche as residents.

Given this documentation, it is clear that William Harlan Speers was married to Daisy, and only Daisy, and is buried in Cedar Falls, Iowa, while William Hale Speers was married to Sylvia, and only Sylvia, and is buried in Iowa Falls, Iowa.

It can get kind of confusing when two people with the same first and last names, middle initial, birth year, and the same county of residence can get confusing. Thank you for your assistance in helping to stimulate the search for the above documentation. That really helped to clarify the two William H. Speers.

RE: Clarence Greer
FYI there was a marker for Jakie 2/24/17-7/2/87 and Laura Greer 9/13/18-12/29/09 next to Clarence. I photographed them also but found that they had no memorials. Are they of any interest to you?

I received an edit from you for Oscar Rush, for adding a father, as follows:

Helen Frances Stephens Rush
(1900 - 1991)

The edit appears to be a woman, and I thought Oscar's father's name was Don. Also, this person was born in 1900, and Oscar in 1908. I was wondering if Helen could be his step-mother.

Did you know Oscar? He was a wonderful man.
