I need to be pointed in the right direction. Maybe the
Masonic Lodge? Or the town of Steilacoom?
Any help appreciated.
Hi Dina: Steilacoom is a town just south of Tacoma, WA. on I-5 before you
reach Olympia. It should be on any good road map. I don't know anything
about Masonic Lodges -- maybe someone else can help you with that.

- 14. Re: so Seattle 1886 
- There is a manuscript at the Seattle Archives titled "A History of
Cemeteries in the City of Seattle" by Laura C. Daly, 1984. She provides a
very thorough listing of early Seattle cemeteries and provides their
histories. I believe Laura can still be contacted through the
Evergreen-Washelli Funeral Home in Seattle. Sorry, I don't have a number
but I'm sure someone on the list can provide it.
South Seattle in 1884-1886 might be considered to be "Duwamish" and/or
"Georgetown" and there are two cemeteries I

Do you have any idea which county he worked in. My husband worked for Puget
Sound Power and Light beginning in the 60's for 13 years in Skagit County.
The main office was in King County (Bellevue), it then became Puget Sound
Energy. You might try writing or calling the main office to see how long
they keep employee records.

We'd better start spreading the word. Although I must admit that I was never
successful in preventing my family from buying the Halbert's of Bath, Ohio
