Hi,

I'm in need of an obituary for Mr. Langfield. He actually died in Boise at the Veteran's Home, but lived in Orofino.

On the copy please include the newspaper's name, the issue date, and the section and/or page # of where the article(s) appeared. A scanned image sent Email is OK.

I am willing to pay a reasonable fee for assistance.

Thanks,
Jeff Elmer

Based on your other posts, massive amounts of obits wanted; and, your website: http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~westklic/
it appears you are a paid genealogist? Will you be getting payment for finding this obit?

Oh, just realized who you were up in Klickitat. This guy posts obits found and does a wonderful job in research. Apparently this is not being charged. I have a lot of respect for the work you do. Sorry about the misunderstanding.

Hi,

Thanks for finding what you did. True, not his obituary, but interesting none the less. I will pass this along to his son.

HI,

Thanks for the replies. The ID State Historical Society just supplied his obituary.

The obituary is part of a high school reunion project I've been working on since last October. We've already compiled a list of graduates, their former classmates, and all of the teachers and other staff members of my hometown's school - Trout Lake, WA. For this year's reunion (which is held every 3 years) we are creating a Memorial Book to help better remember those listed above who have passed away. We are hoping to include a photograph of these people with their obituaries. We've also collected several dozen class photographs and have been busy identifying the students.

Thanks again for your help,
Jeff Elmer
