Birth: Apr. 2, 1864
Polk County
Oregon, USA
Death: Feb. 23, 1945
Canoga Park
Los Angeles County

I visited the Oakwood Cemetery March 2,2013 looking for Joseph's grave. I was told he was not there, I showed them his death certificate. They did some more looking and found a card which I have posted. No one clamed his body so the state gave him a charity case worker ..he was cremated March 2,1945 and placed in an unmarked grave...where abouts unknown in the cemetery.

At the time of Joseph's death he lived in Canoga Park for 15 years and in California for 45 years. he was 80 years, 10 mos. and 21 days old when he passed away. He was a carpenter by trade and he was widowed. He would have been about 36 years old when he moved to California.

Finally the last child found, and he has been added to his parents and is now with his brothers and sisters.
