Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started out just looking for my family but I've now become enthralled with hanging out in cemeteries. I live in SE Idaho and I am more than happy to walk through cemeteries throughout SE Idaho if you don't live close by and would like some "boots on the ground" to help with your research.

I am primarily looking for links to my family history: NORRIS, POSTON, GETZ, DEATHERAGE, ESKRIDGE, WALLACE

You are free to use any photos of gravestones that I upload. Please request permission to use any photos which include people. Thank you!

RE: Laura Leona Fearing
Here's a little bit my mother told me as a girl, about Henry Bascom Forrey. I just sent a cousin who was asking if I knew anything about his military record. She just found a copy of the Forrey-Read book that Laura's sister Hattie Diehl wrote, and she's going to scan it and e-mail it to me. I'll forward it to you if you send me your e-mail. Mine is garaway58@gmail.com
My mother told me several Henry Bascom Forrey
stories from the civil war. He was in the Iowa cavalry, I believe it was Company 7, and had his horse shot out from under him by a cannonball, which just grazed his knee. He told his fellow soldiers that no matter what happened to him, he did not want to be taken to the hospital; he would live or die, but he didn't want to do it at the field hospital. He avoided many of the various diseases that were carried in water and went around the troops, because the water was always muddy, and he didn't like to drink mud, so he always made it into coffee, so he couldn't see the color of the mud, and he could pretend it was clear. (In the process, boiling the water, which they didn't know about, yet.) He was in the battle for Island 10 in the Mississippi, and another I don't remember.

RE: Laura Leona Fearing
My great grandmother (Laura's mother) Julia Ann (Read) Forrey lived to be 92. Her husband, Henry Bascomb Forrey, died of skin cancer in 1908, and Julia lived to 1937. After Henry died, her children took care of her by turns, so she was shuffled from Kansas to Idaho to California. She became quite senile before she died. My mother was born in 1930, and had a good memory for childhood happenings. Julia lived with them when my mother was young, and my mother told me stories about her. Julia wanted to be helpful, but wasn't really capable of doing much. She did, however, remember how to knit, so long as it was simple and small. When she asked what she could do to help, her daughter Edith would say, "I really need a new dishrag. Do you think you could knit me one?" She kept knitting needles and the string she saved off of packages (it was during the depression) in a drawer in the kitchen just for this purpose, and would get them out, and Julia would happily knit a dishrag. An hour or so later, she'd want to help, and she would have forgotten that she'd just knit a dishrag, and would happily knit another when asked. (I suspect that my grandma may have spent her evenings unravelling them.) My mother's job was to make sure that Julia didn't wander out the front gate and get lost. If she couldn't prevent her from leaving, she was to go with her, and bring her back home safely, even if that meant asking for help from a grown-up, as she knew her street address. (They lived in Pasadena.)
The families that moved to Idaho were supposed to be around Cauldwell and Kuna.

Laura Leona Fearing
I was leaving a message for Marion Cox Fearing, and noticed that you said that Laura was your several greats grandmother. My grandmother was Laura's littlest sister Edith Forrey. She and her sister Ethel married Stoner brothers and moved to California in the early 1900's. I saw that you live in Idaho. There are a lot of Forreys in Idaho, still, all your relatives. Albert (Laura's oldest brother) had a lot of kids, and most of them stayed in Idaho. I think some of the other siblings lived in Idaho, also.

RE: Thanks! Memorial #9480948
I am so sorry for the condition of the stone. Usually I have my tools with me to clean the stone but this time I was on a week long trail ride with horses and did not bring them. I am hoping to go back towards the end of this month for a few days so I will be sure to take them with me so I can clean it better. If not I will also try to do a transfer with paper and chalk and see what we get. I live in Kansas City area and this is about 5 hours from me but we go a couple times a years. Thank you for corresponding with me and don't hesitate to ask questions. Karen

RE: Zoe Strom #141301416
You are very welcome for the information. I'm glad you found her parents so that I could link the memorials to her. I cannot find a good source with the spelling of her middle name. Do you know if it was spelled "Jacqueline," "Jacquelyn," or "Jaqulyn" or some other spelling? The last iteration is how her name was spelled in the database of Social Security Applications and Claims (which is often wrong).
