I use Findagrave to post information I come across in the course of my regular work so others can find it.
I especially enjoy using archival research to locate and verify unmarked "forgotten" burials in territorial-era cemeteries.

If you want to remove the clipping you can do so as I transcribed it and hyperlinked to you.
Thanks for posting it. The article adds to his memorial page.

|BriansBlues||Monticello Convention Cemetery|
I have an update for you for your virtual cemetery of the signers of the Monticello Convention [ @ http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=323059 ]
S.P. Moses, elected as a delegate to the convention on the 13th of November, was Simpson Pippin (or Preston) Moses (b. abt 1823 in South Carolina, d. Nov 1883, likely but not certainly in Washington D.C.) He was "a fiery young lawyer from Ohio" who, in 1851, was appointed by President Millard Fillmore to the newly created post of Customs Collector at Olympia (in the then-Territory of Oregon), an agent of the United States Treasury. Simpson was also the brother of Abram Benton Moses, killed in the Puget Sound War and the person for whom Chief Leschi of the Nisqually tribe was hanged for the murder of (for which he was exonerated in 2004). They also had another brother, Andrew Jackson Moses, who was the 2nd Territorial Librarian and County Auditor at Olympia (1859-1860).
Moses purportedly "disappeared" sometime before 1860 acc. to some sources, but the fact is that he left the Territory with his family abt 1854 and worked as a lawyer and held political office in Washington, D.C. until he died in Nov 1883. His body is buried in R 97/191 of the Congressional Cemetery in D.C. However, no FindAGrave Memorial currently exists for him.

I added a couple of pics I took back in 2008 of this cemetary before it was cleaned up and renovated. I used to live less than .5 mile from it, and still only about 3 miles today.
Take a look - hope you like the contribution.
|Kim Hukill Dupell||Ida Finholm|
Ida has a headstone in the Fraola Cemetery. Her birth year was 1883. 76353945
|Kim Hukill Dupell||Melander|
I found another persons headstone in the Fraola Cemetery, Con Melander. Born 1/25/1887, died 11/20/1937. He's buried next to his brother Victor. Does he have a headstone at the Olalla Cemetery also?
|Kim Hukill Dupell||Alcinous R. Mace|
I show Alcinous and his wife as being buried a the Fraola (Olalla-Fragaria Cemetery). They share a headstone there. He died in 1857. I have added him to the Fraola Cemetery so you might want to delete his from the Olalla Cemetery.
