Can anyone give me the email address of someone who lives in Elma, Grays Harbor, WA that might be able to take some pictures of tombstones and send me the names of those interred in the Clay family plot in the local cemetery? I am searching for Charles Edward Clay and his second wife, Mary Agnes Abney Clay. Charles was a town marshall when he died as the result of being kicked in the groin by a drunk and developed gangrene. I am interested in finding out what happened to the drunk. If you know an address of the police department in Elma, perhaps I could write to them and find out. Charles was related to Henry Clay the Orator.
