BENOY, LUPER posted by Deborah Jensen on Sunday, May 31, 1998

 
I am interested in obtaining information about Mr. Thomas Benoy who lived in Idaho County, Sleter Precinct, in 1920 with his wife, Jane and stepson, F. L. Luper. Thomas was employed as a blacksmith. In the 1920's Thomas was murdered by his wife. I would like to see if anyone in your County is aware of this and if there are any newspaper articles concerning this event. I do not, unfortunately, know when in the 20's this happened. I am starting to research this so my information is limited.
CLOUSER posted by Elizabeth Schmitt on Friday, June 19, 1998

 
Looking for information on Beecher CLOUSER (may also be known as Nelson Beecher CLOUSER). He was born in Champaign Co., IL about 1859, son of David CLOUSER and Mary E. TOY. Mary is believed to have died in childbirth. Beecher was in Montgomery Co., IN in 1880. He is believed to have gone to Grangeville, Idaho before 1900. After that the family lost track of him.
MOFFITT posted by Penny Brophy on Friday, July 10, 1998

 
Logan "Carson" Moffitt was married to my aunt Amy Landru. She was a school teacher in Forest Idaho around the end of WWI. Logan hung himself in the barn around 1918. he was born oct 14, 1880 and was on the military lists in that area. I believe the county was called Lewis at that time any help you can be will again be greatly appreciated. I want to send for his obituary. My Aunt Amy had supposedly helped to get some water rights for the Nez Perce but have had no luck in finding the treaty. She was supposedly representing them in Washington DC. When she came back successfully, the Chief (Joseph) Old gave her a furnished home he built to show his gratitude. That's how the story goes would love to prove that one but right now just would be happy to get Moffitt's death date around 1918.
RIGGINS, ROBY posted by Jann Rogers on Friday, July 10, 1998

 
My GG Grandmother (Elenor Serena) was first married to a Riggins in Missouri and had three children: Andrew, George, and Nancy. Family history states that this first husband was John, who later had the well documented Richard L Riggins.(John moved from Missouri to Idaho county in 1863. Elenor is found in Salem, Oregon in 1853 and married my GG Grandfather, Thomas Reason ROBY in that year. Elenor was divorced Reason in 1877 and is found in Mt. Idaho in 1880 with her son, George Riggins. From my research, I believe that Elenor's first husband probably is not John...perhaps another Riggins brother...maybe Fred. My query is: who is the first husband of Elenor and the father of George, Andrew, and Nancy?
ANDREWS posted by Gary Patterson on Wednesday, August 26, 1998

 
My name is Gary Patterson from Middlebourne, WV and I need HELP. I am looking for any information on Oscar ANDREWS. The only information that I have is that he was born in WV in probably 1860's or 1870's. My Mother told me that we went to Idaho (I don't know when) and Homesteaded some land near Gifford on which he raised navy beans. She thinks that he had 2 sons and 1 daughter. She could not remember his Wife's name. I know that this is not very much to go on, but if you can be of any help I will be very grateful. Thanks in advance...Gary
BEASLEY, BISBEE, MOYERS, MYERS posted by Shannon Conder on Wednesday, August 26, 1998

 
I am looking for death/burial information for George MYERS/MOYERS d. abt. 1904 and Sarah (Bisbee) MYERS/MOYERS abt. 1906. Family records indicate they were buried at Grangeville. Family records also indicate their name as MYERS but there is strong evidence that their name was actually MOYERS. Any help or advice as to where I might obtain some information would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
BROWN, FARRENS posted by Kenneth Brown on Sunday, September 13, 1998

 
My father has traced his family back to Frank Brown and George Farrens but would like to know more about any of their family that may have lived in Idaho county or the surrounding counties. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The last that these people were listed on the census was in 1910.

KNIGHT, PALMER posted by Ann Morey on Wednesday, October 7, 1998

 
Recently determined my husband's g-grandmother, Della (KNIGHT) PALMER, died in Kamiah 25 May 1917, and was buried in the Woodland Cemetery near Harrisburg. Her obituary lists her as the "wife of the auctioneer", Almon L. PALMER. At the time of Della's death, her mother was still alive. Would love to know more about the KNIGHT family and anything possible about Della and Almon while they lived in Idaho County.
