A Phebe Liedkie b. 2 May 1889, Last Residence=Lewiston, Nez Perce Co., ID, d. Feb 1984. Her soc. sec. # was assigned in Idaho in 1965. Source: Social Security Death Index,

There is a volunteer at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness who will find copies of obituaries. Go to, read instructions, choose Idaho, choose Nez Perce Co.

I didn't find Earnest's death info but someone had posted a Family Tree on Ancestry which showed he died in Idaho in 1962. I'd contact the Idaho State Historical Society Public Archives and Research Library, who does research for a fee. Successful Searching!
