Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ilo/Vollmer Historical Society in Craigmont is open every Wednesday.

It is located in Craigmont City Hall Building. Take the 95 Business Loop through Craigmont and it will take you right to the Historical Society and City Park.

The Historical Society has members who love to do research, so if you need any help finding relatives, just give them a call at (208) 924-5474.

If you have any records, photos, family information, etc., we would love for you to share. Or if you have questions or suggestions, please drop me a line.

In an effort to make contact with anyone researching their Lewis County family, the Ilo-Vollmer Historical Society has chosen not to post full dates with these cemetery records, only names. Their feelings are that people often visit a website and collect the material they want without taking time to get in touch with the local historical and genealogical groups who are interested in exchanging information.

If contacted, the Ilo-Vollmer Historical Society is very willing to help genealogists with full birth and death dates. The group has over 11,000 local obituaries in addition to other records, which they will check to assist researchers find out as much as possible about their ancestors.

For more information, please contact the Ilo-Vollmer Historical Society, Box 61, Craigmont, Idaho 83523 or Shelley Kuther,

Many of the Lewis County cemetery records were originally collected in the late 1960's and the 1970's by Margaret Nell Longeteig, formerly of Craigmont and now of Lewiston. Her work was continued in the 1980s by Byron Bovey of Craigmont, who helped update the listings and began computerizing them, and by Shelley Thomason Kuther of Craigmont, who also helped with the updating.

About my Direct Family Surname
Sorry my first message did not Reply correctly. As I have tried to explain to you. I'm very sure that the Lockridge Surname's that you have there, could very well be spelled with the "K". And I did say I would have to take the list and go over it. And I did say that from my Mother's, Father's side of my family that ALL the Lochridge's are spelled with the letter "H". And in my Genealogy of that side I have found many Headstone's that where carved wrong. And I'm NOT saying at all that you are wrong there. But there have been so many that the Marker Order was written up with the wrong spellings. And I have found this right here in our Local Cemetery, where so many of my Grandfather's Family had many plots, only to see a few misspelled. And the biggest error's where in the Eastern States, in the older year's.
Also I wished to send you this Link about where Find-A-Grave was bought by In this Message system here you may have to Copy & Paste this link into your Browser so it will open. And you may already know this Information already, but I thought buy what you have said in one of the last message's, that you may not know this.

Take Care, Mark Edwin Thomas

RE: Mr. Blunt
Naming conventions in the FAQs specifically state:

Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

The option does not exist in the prefix menu for the addition of Mr., so, per the rules (not optional), his "first name" becomes Male or Unknown Male. Your decision.

RE: Bruce L. Lockridge
Again to try and let you understand, my Mother's Maiden name is Lochridge, and every Lochridge out in these Western States are also Spelled as Lochridge. None out here ever used the Lockridge Spelling. Now I have to also go though all these names that are listed in the Craigmont Cemetery, As so many have no Date's of Birth or Death on them eather.
I'm not telling saying that you all are wrong, but being from a long line of Lochridge family member's. I just must check all of this for myself, and also with the help of a Cousin I have in Spokane, Wa.
Take Care, Mark Edwin Thomas

RE: Bruce Lyle Lockridge
Thank-you, for letting me know that you Deleted your Bruce Lyle Lochridge. And I don't remember if I wrote you 1st or the other member as there was two entries for Bruce Lyle Lochridge. And as I had said this issue of the K or H, has been a major problem in my Family's Tree. And with people in the older year's not having the schooling that was done in these later year's. But in the older year's people would Sound out the Words and Name's. So this is how the Lockridge came to be. And even the order's that where written for the Headstone's where misspelled. I have this same issue in my Father's Family member's, And I have found informtional Writings all about this issue. But I can understand where you all are coming from there in the Graigmont Cemetery as there are almost 20 Surname's in that Cemetery with Lockridge. But in all of my findings out west of this Surname, it was spelled as Lochridge. This may never get cleared up 100%, but like you say Ancestry saids it should be spelled as on the Marker. But I have found that there are many Markers that are for sure misspelled, in the Cemetery right here in my Home town, where many of my Direct Relatives are.
Take Care, Mark Edwin Thomas.

I was wondering how I'd go about contacting someone at Kamiah cemetery. I want to ask about their regulations on leaving items on the head stones.

Thank you Kimberly Devereau
