Bio and Links
Bio Photo My great, great grandfather got me interested in genealogy with all the information he passed down through the family. How I wish I could have met him. He was a very sentimental fellow, recording many family events, happy and sad. To have lost 5 of his 10 children before they reached the age of 23 must have had a significant impact in his life. He wrote poems about his children and a tribute to his wife after she died.

I have always liked visiting cemeteries and have been to many coast to coast but didn't take pictures until I discovered FAG. What a wonderful place to make a memorial for our loved ones and also help others find their ancestors burial places!

RE: Jason Wade Minks
Well, I don't know. There are 2 different obits in this book for him and both say he was killed Jan 14, 1996.
I'm stumped. I guess go with the tombstone, although I can't imagine 2 separate newspapers (one is the Marceline Press and the other is the Brookfield Daily News Bulletin) both being incorrect.
I'm going to see if I can find another source...

OK, Evidently it was the middle of the night/early morning, because the local Indiana Newspaper, dated the 15th said he died the 13/14th.

That doesn't help a lot, does it. Sorry.

Found this little news article in the Colfax Gazette, 23 Dec 1904, Colfax, Whitman, Washington. Thought you'd be interested.
Two Brothers Meet in Colfax
There was a happy meeting in Colfax one day last week when C. W. and A. H. Endsley met after a separation of over 30 years. C W. Endsley is a late arrival from western Nebraska. He is visiting at the home of his nephews, after having journeyed overland from his home in Nebraska by wagon on a tour of the northwest. He located his brother, of whom he had lost trace for many years, at Boise, Idaho, and the latter came up to meet him. The brother from Boise has followed mining during the years he has been in the west and spends his winters in Boise and tells many interesting stories of the development of central Idaho that have come under his observation. After a week's visit the two brothers parted yesterday; one to continue on his journey to Seattle and other coast towns, the other to go back to his home in Boise.
