Donna Buchanan 13 Oct 2018
I am researching my family. My father Donald J Buchanan lived on a farm in Randle on the Cispus river in the 1930's. The farm initially belonged to my greatgransparents George Peters (3rd husband) and America (Maiden name Johnson). My grandfather, George Silas Buchanan, had a son Edsel Jerrold Buchanan (my father's brother) who died in an accident on the farm in Jun 1937. He was pronounced dead at the hospital in Morton. My mother was a young volunteer at the hospital when "Eddie" was brought in. Both of my parents remember that he was buried in the cemetery in Randle however, I cannot find any documentation of it. I have looked through your mapping of the cemetery and wonder if you came upon any unmarked infant graves. Would appreciate any help and or direction. He died 6/5/1937. My father remembers that he was between 1-2 years of age.

I am trying to find out information about my paternal family - census nformation, burial sites, misc. My father's name: Peter Mitchell {deceased}. However his parents' names were: Charles Micewitcz and Katherine Pocona. His death certificate indicates he was born in Meskill, Lewis County; he said he grew up in Doty; and my cousins say the family resided in Pe Ell. His parents were Lithuwanian immigrants. His had 4 siblings: Mike, Stella, Helen, Alex. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have lived in Pe Ell for about 17 years now. I have always been fascinated with the rich history in this area. I have been trying to research the old building that sits outside of Pe Ell, I believe in the McCormick area, it looks like an old hospital with a lot of windows. The building sits on the left hand side of the highway. Any information you could provide would be great. Thank you for your time.
