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.

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 https://www.sos.wa.gov/legacy/cities_detail.aspx?i=40 "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

Monticello Convention Cemetery
I have an update for you for your virtual cemetery of the signers of the Monticello Convention [ @ http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=323059 ]

S.P. Moses, elected as a delegate to the convention on the 13th of November, was Simpson Pippin (or Preston) Moses (b. abt 1823 in South Carolina, d. Nov 1883, likely but not certainly in Washington D.C.) He was "a fiery young lawyer from Ohio" who, in 1851, was appointed by President Millard Fillmore to the newly created post of Customs Collector at Olympia (in the then-Territory of Oregon), an agent of the United States Treasury. Simpson was also the brother of Abram Benton Moses, killed in the Puget Sound War and the person for whom Chief Leschi of the Nisqually tribe was hanged for the murder of (for which he was exonerated in 2004). They also had another brother, Andrew Jackson Moses, who was the 2nd Territorial Librarian and County Auditor at Olympia (1859-1860).

Moses purportedly "disappeared" sometime before 1860 acc. to some sources, but the fact is that he left the Territory with his family abt 1854 and worked as a lawyer and held political office in Washington, D.C. until he died in Nov 1883. His body is buried in R 97/191 of the Congressional Cemetery in D.C. However, no FindAGrave Memorial currently exists for him.
