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.

Monticello Convention Cemetery
I have an update for you for your virtual cemetery of the signers of the Monticello Convention [ @ ]

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.

How did you get a picture of Nettie James? I've never seen a picture of my Grandmother before. Are you related to her?

Dierenger Cemetary
I added a couple of pics I took back in 2008 of this cemetary before it was cleaned up and renovated. I used to live less than .5 mile from it, and still only about 3 miles today.

Take a look - hope you like the contribution.
