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, www.ancestry.com.

There is a volunteer at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness who will find copies of obituaries. Go to www.raogk.org, 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, www.idahohistory.net/library_archives.html who does research for a fee. Successful Searching!

Yours is an older message, you may have already received answers. I would NOT pay for research, there is enough information on this family to risk someone charging you. I will give you a bit of what's available, it's late and I need to go.

If not, there are several persons posting family trees on this family. If you have ancestry.com either at home or via your local library, you can access a mass amount of information.

Hi franke1,
My grandmother is Rachel, Phoebe's daughter. She was already born by the time Phoebe and Earnest Liedkie were married so my interest in the Liedkie name ends as Earnest. I do have a copy of his Petition of Naturalization and signed Oath of Alegiance. Processed in June 1910 and October 1910 respectively. I'd be happy to share with you since I had to pay for the info myself.
I have to admit, I can't remember where I got his death info from but I'll keep searching my records.

William Frederick Liedkie was my grandfather. He lived much of his life in Malden Washington. As I recall he died in a Spokane Washington Hospital around 1981.
