Yantis information
Hi – I’m descended from Benjamin Franklin Yantis, a brother of Alexander Scott Yantis.

I noticed that Alexander’s page has “Alexander Scott J Yantis”. I’ve never seen the “J” before. Did you add it? If so, what was your source?

Also, what kind of information do you have on the Lapsley and Yantis families? Right now my “rabbit hole” is the 1852/1854 Oregon Trail trips taken by the Yantis families.

Find A Grave Memorial# 19024335

Re: Alexander Scott Yantis and Sarah Green Yantis (19024398) Forest Grove Cemetery, Tenino, Thurston County, Washiington, USA

Hi Connie:

May I use the headstone photos for both Alexander and Sarah in my tree on Ancestry, my personal data base, and in a book I am making for a Yantis relative?

Your consideration is greatly appreciated.

If I have requested before I apologize, but I can find no such record in my Find A Grave file.

I am helping my son-in-law work on his family history. Lilly Heidman Barclay was Randy's 3rd great grandmother, her memorial # 67517840 was a wonderful surprise to find. Do you have any idea where her husband Arthur Barclay is buried. I also want to know if it is ok to use the photos from Lilly's memorial on her profile on
Thanks again;

You're very welcome. Glad I was able to find them. Sorry the individual markers aren't more readable.

My great aunt was married to George A. Barclay's son, George Ray Barclay (his second wife was Mayday Jones Barclay-my great aunt). George's 3 children by Mayday are living in Oregon and California. I see his youngest son several times a year.
