Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history for over 13 years. I was born and raised in Dayton, Washington and both sides of my family were early pioneers of the Washington Territory. The main branches of my family tree are - Laughery, Frye/Fry, Marks, Rinehart, Barclay, Glanville, and Wernecke. I enjoy helping others with their family research. Please feel free to copy and use any pictures or info I have posted! I keep copies of all pictures so if you would like a disc please email me. My ultimate goal is to get pics of all the tombstones in the Dayton City Cemetery. I am constantly updating, so if there is a pic you need, but isn't listed, please feel free to contact me. I also have my family tree posted on under Laughery family tree. It is constantly expanding and includes many pictures and documents. Currently I live in Spokane, Washington. I am willing to take pictures in the Spokane area, just send me an email!

Nellie James McGlothlin
Hello Geraldine,
My apologies on the edits for Nellie's parents - she was the spouse of Harry Benton McGlothlin (my great-grand uncle), and the daughter of Miles and Martha Jane James...somehow I entered her parental information incorrectly in the edits.

If you need additional information, her father's memorial is on Find-a-Grave (#7617307) along with his obituary.

Thanks, again, for your help.

Otis Adams, 37902336
Hello Geraldine,
Another Find A Grave member gave me your name, and after reading your bio, even though you now live in Spokane, you might be able to direct me to someone who can help. I'm doing a photo project in Lincoln Memorial Park, Portland, of all crypts in the mausoleum. I've been trying to link Golda Leola (Adams) Falloon, 161263050, with her parents, Otis & Cassie Adeline (Ogle) Adams. There is an Otis Adams in Dayton City Cemetery. He might be Golda's father, as his information closely resembles her father's information. His 2nd wife was Cora Grace Weygandt Pruitt Ball. I believe Otis' first wife was Cassie Adeline (Ogle) Adams, who is buried in Portland, in the same cemetery as her daughter.

I need to find an obituary, death or funeral notice that might list his survivors, such as children and siblings. That would help me determine if he is Golda's father. Are you familiar with Otis Adams or his family? Would the public library in Dayton have newspaper resources if I provide death date, and use "ask a librarian?" Is there any other contact you could suggest. I'm not a member of this family, so a free resource would be appreciated.

Lellie Rodaway
Hello, Geraldine,
I have a grand aunt, Ida Rodaway, who is buried in Dayton Cemetery plot F, lot 16, sec. 2. She would have been about 10 years old at her death. According to the Washington state census she had a sister named L.A. who apparently died between 1887 and 1892. I found a burial of a Lellie Rodaway in block F, lot 16, section 1 and wonder if this might perhaps be my L.A. Are these sites next to each other? However, on recently checking the entry on Find a grave, I see that Lellie died in 1990 and am wondering if this could be an error and should read 1890? I know there is no stone but I'm wondering if it is possible to check on this. I would very much appreciate it.
Thank you,

Alma/Ada Calkins
This below SSDI record for Ada Calkins shows the same dates as what I could make out on the headstone you photographed for Alma Calkins. I'm guessing that she went by the name Ada but her baptismal name was Alma. What do you think? Ann

RE: Goldie Turner
You mentioned "Clearing the cache." How is that done? I know about "refreshing" a page but not clearing the cache. Ann
