I am a native of Southeast Idaho, born in the LDS Hospital in Idaho Falls (now a parking lot). I grew up in Riverside, west of Blackfoot, and attended Riverside Elementary (now a grassy field) and Snake River High School (now a Junior High).
I have been involved in family history off and on since I took a genealogy class from Neal Southwick at Ricks College (now BYU - Idaho), although most of the information I have was found by my father, Dale Scott. If I can build on what he accomplished, I'll feel like I am of some worth.
bob loren I am sorry. I just noticed your messages that you couldn't find his grave and found a death notice which stated he was cremated. I will need to find out who has or where his ashes are. Thank you so much..
Gilbert Avery I'm working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of Co. M, 15th NY Heavy Artillery. Could I have your permission to use the picture you posted of Gilbert Avery's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source.
