Query Text: Additional update to previous query: The correct spelling of one of the names listed in my previous query is Herzig, not Hertzig. In 1900 there was also a Fred Hertzig living in Washougal born in Switzerland in Jan. of 1860. I suspect this person is also a relative. In later years, there was a Harold and Maud Hertzig that lived inl Camas. Wa, which are also probably relatives. Maude was born in Eugene Oregon on Apr. 24, 1895 and died on Aug. 7, 1938. John Herzig ( the postmaster) also had a sister named Mary REICHEN and a nephew Jacob Reichen living with his family in Washougal in about 1900. Mary Reichen was born in Switzerland in May 1858 and Jacob was born in Oregon in 1891. There was a Samuel Reichen also living in Washougal at that time, which I believe was the brother in law of Mary. Samuel was born in Switzerland in March of 1857. Sim and Clara Nystrom, mentioned in my earlier query, also had two sons named Stanton and Elton. I suspect they may still be living, but I don't know where at present. Any information anyone can provide to me will be greatly appreciated.

Query Text: I am looking for information on my mother (Melba E. HUTTO; dob 6/8/15) and her natural parents (John and Marie OTTOSEN) as well as her adopted parents (Charles "Howard" and Ida Hutto. My grandmother (Marie) immigrated from Norway and upon the death of her husband (John) put her daughter (Rhoda) up for adoption in 1915 (and her name was changed to Melba Hutto). I understand that her adopted father was a Clark County Deputy Sheriff and lived 8 miles south of Ridgefield. Prior to this they had lived in the Portland area and had a hardware store (which Ida continued to operate after they had moved to Washington). My mother did speak with someone who either worked for or owned the Vancouver Furniture Store in her late-teen years and was told that her natural mother had moved to Tacoma, WA. We have not been very successful in finding any information out about either her adopted or natural parents. Ida and Howard both passed away in the 1940's and are buried in what was formerly the Manor Cemetery. Any information regarding Hutto's or Ottosen's would be greatly apprecited (sorensen@linkport.com) Thanks.
