Colette Sexton 9 Nov 2019

Follow-up to 2007 query: James P. Sexton was the husband of Carrie (COX) Sexton. They might have lived near Morton, WA. Carrie (COX) was the sister of Fannie (COX) Davis. Fannie was the wife of Duran Columbus Davis. Duran's father was Mary Floyd Davis. Wonderful information given at the Davis-Cox family reunion.

(Update from 2012) The child who was born to Frank and Effie Sexton on 22 Jul 1916 was NOT named Helen Anna Sexton, as I was previously informed. The child's name was Hazel Mae Sexton, born 22 Jul 1916 and died 23 May 2001. Sorry for the confusion. Is there anyone with other info on our family? Thank You Very Much!

I would like to have information regarding my great grandparents and/or extended families of GEORGE WASHINGTON WRIGHT and MARY ELIZABETH NICHOLS WHITE WRIGHT and HOLLIS C. GORE and MARY EVELLINE TOWNER GORE. Both families lived in LEWIS COUNTY, WASHINGTON from 1880's till their deaths in the 1900's (1915-1925). My father was born in Ethel, Lewis County, Washington, child of Walter A. Wright and Mary Maude Gore Wright.

My Gore and Wright family are listed in the 1910 census for Ethel (Gore) and Salkum (Wright). I would like to be able to locate the homesteads of Hollis & Mary E. Gore and George & Mary E. Wright. It might be a bit confusing but three of the children of the Wright's married three of the children of the Gore's. 1. Del/Bertha Wright; 2. Walter/Maude Wright; 3. John E./Alta Gore. I am also interested in the Towner's (and there were several) that lived in Lewis County as that was Mary Evelline Gore's maiden name.

I am interested in a Mr. Lindberg who owned timberland in Mineral, WA. He built his home in Mineral around 1900. Was active in the lumber business there. We are living in what used to be his home on Mineral Lake.

Obtained this 1946 Coleman lantern from a friend who found it at the Packwood Community Yard Sale. Noticed it is painted Orange. There are no other marks, stamps or identification other than the Orange Paint. My speculation runs amuck and suggests to me that I can spin a story about it being from a Crown-Willamette or Crown-Zellerbach logging camp - which is simply a story - but

Is there a map of the following I can use to help create the illusion, in particular between about 1945 and 1955

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.
