Gilbert and Elizabeth Dean were married in 1897 in Westport, WA. Their daughter, Dorothy, was my great-grandmother. Gilbert was in the Coast Guard in Westport in 1900 and joined the police force of Aberdeen in 1907. Any help in finding out more about these two and their parents would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for information on GEORGE DONAKER who lived in Junction City, Grays Harbor in 1920. He worked as a blacksmith in a lumber mill at the time. He reported on the census that he was born in Indiana. I am working on a family history of the Donaker family, and would like to include him.
