Historian living and working in Western Washington.

I use Findagrave to post information I come across in the course of my regular work so others can find it.

I especially enjoy using archival research to locate and verify unmarked "forgotten" burials in territorial-era cemeteries.

He died in an accidental drowning, the body location is unknown according to the family story and there's a link to Washington State Archives that states the body is in a unknown location

Thanks for the help. I added a note that the name maybe reversed, but did change it as you suggested.

I think you meant to replace his father's link but you put it in the spouse field. I will take care of it. I don't recall linking to that BU...hmmmm.

Dieringer Pioneer Cemetery
There is a correction to the name of this cemetery. It is actually the Lake Tapps Pioneer Cemetery. The sign is being replaced and a rededication will occur on June 4, 2014. The name Dieringer was mistakenly attached to it during an Eagle Scout clean up of the cemetery. With documentation of the original deed which dates 1889, the correct name will be placed on the new sign.
The cemetery is actually located near Bonney Lake, Washington, but has a Buckley,Washington mailing address.

Harry Darby Huntington hosted Monticello Convention
Dear friend,
I stumbled on the Monticello Convention virtual gravesite when I was looking into the Monticello Convention that my ancestor, Harry "Darby" Huntington hosted according to "Two years after founding the town, Darby Huntington hosted the Monticello Convention in his home. On November 25, 1852, 44 delegates signed the petition requesting Congress to create a separate territory north of the Columbia River. Monticello became the County Seat when Washington Territory was established in 1853." A family story tells that it was actually "held in the Old Priest House." Either way, as founder of the town of Monticello, he was there.
I think you have him listed as Henry D. Huntington. He can be located and linked at Find A Grave Memorial# 12512257.
I hope that helps,
Heather Walker
