The following biographies have been transcribed from a variety of sources, or written by the contributors. I am always happy to post new biographies to this site. Biographies must be related to Lewis Co., WA residents, and must be transcribed from sources in the public domain (published before 1925) or written by the contributor. Please email Jenny for more information. Please note: I do not have any additional information on these individuals beyond what is included in the biographies, and will not be able to answer any queries regarding these families.
