Looking for information on my grandparents, Andrew ERICKSON and Lydia (FALHCRANTZ) ERICKSON. they had a farm near Malo in the early 1900's my father Alver L.ERICKSON was born there on September 28th, 1905. He had two sisters, Audrey and Inez (married named BROWN). Inez was married to Lloyd BROWN and there are currently several cousins (I believe) in the Republic area. I know my grand parents were married in Republic (circa late 1890's or early 1900's). I believe both immigrated from Sweden before they were married. Any information you can give me on them or if you have any suggestions as to where I can locate this information would be appreciated. I know my grandmother Lydia died at St. Martins Hospital in Tonasket in the 1950's, I have virtually no information on my grandfather Andrew, I am stuck in my research until I can obtain additional information on them. 

Doyle Chambers Jul 7, 1998
I am seeking any relatives or descendants of Willam S. CAGLE who is written of in the History of North Washington, pub. 1904. He was my maternal great-uncle. His sister Caroline married Hosea STIRLING, my mother's grandfather. Any information would be appreciated as it would assisted me in filling in the blanks on the family tree which I have already placed on the internet at my website. The CAGLE lineage has been traced to Leonhart KEGEL, b.1684 in Germany. There are at present many thousands of descendants in this country. As William was prominant in that area, he should have children, and grandchildren there. Thanks, Doyle Chambers.

Olaf Holmer JOHNSON and Katherine (Katie) CANNON JOHNSON homesteaded on Onion Creek near Northport 1893. Four of their children were born there: Letha Margaret 1894, Anna Violia 1895, Earl William 1897, Pearl 1898. In 1894 a flood nearly wiped out Northport. Would like information on flood, information on homestead records, or exchange info about the family. Many thanks. 

Robert B. Stewart Feb 15, 1998  
Bruce CARMICHAEL married Phoebe STEWART in Argyllshire (or Ayrshire) Scotland. James Bruce CARMICHAEL-STEWART (or maybe just Stewart) emmigrates to Canada in 1800 where he married Ann COLLIER. They have several children, one a son, John who marries Jane GRAHAM of Michigan. John and Jane have seven children, two of which are John Wesley, and Will. John Wesley, with his wife Lydia PHILP of Ohio, his brother Will with his family, and their mother go to Daisy, WA around 1905 and homestead there. (I have an old photo of a log cabin in the woods and my young grandfather holding an American Flag.) John Wesley was a Forester. He had three children: Leota (who lived all her life in Colville), Warwick Atlee (my grandfather who moved to California in the 30's), and George A (who moved to Seattle where he died in the 30's, leaving a son named George.) In observance of my grandfather's 50th wedding anniversary in 1978 to Emma-Jane HOLLINSHEAD, a Ralph STEWART, of Clarkston, WA, wrote them a letter addressing them as "Cousins!". Ralph had three children. Gene, who with his wife Minerva lived in Seattle, (Robert?) who had moved to Redding, CA, and Velma, who remained home in Clarkston, WA. Asotin County? I can only assume that Ralph is a son of Will. Another letter from the anniversary was from an Ada STEWART, of Colville, WA, the wife of another cousin it seems. She mentioned the names of her children as Larry, Tad, Geo, Cheryl and Sandy. Warwick and Emma-Jane had two sons while in Colville, James Lee, my uncle, and John Robert, my father. They then moved to Stockton, California. I'm hoping some of these names may ring a bell?

I am trying to locate information on Harry STREETER. Harry was born in England on 6 Sept 1876 to Rueben & Louise STREETER. He lost his wife and daughter in 1903 (due to childbirth). Then Harry emigated to Canada. The family back in England heard from him twice. Once in 1908 from Canada and the other was a postcard from Colville, Washington, dated 26 Sep 1949. Harry would have been 73 years old. I am wondering if maybe he settled in Colville after a life of wheat harvesting and railroad work. If anyone has information or suggestions, please contact me. I am doing this research for a friend who would be very excited to get the information.

George H. WISNER / Lumber Mill in Colville I am currently in search of any information that may exist on the George H. WISNER family, or the mill operated by George H. WISNER. He operated a mill about four miles east of Colville. What I am looking for is any information whatsoever that might exist on Mr. WISNER and his family, the mill, their homestead and location of the grave site in Colville. It is my understanding that he was very active in the community at the time and was also written up in "History of North Washington" (pub.1904). Mr. WISNER died in 1930 and his wife Minnie past away in 1937, and were buried in or near Colville, however I have not been able to locate their grave site or cemetery. If anyone has any information about the WISNER family in Colville or George WISNER's mill, I would be extremely interested.
