I am searching for information on my JANTZEN line. Gr grandmother Eliza Bentina Christina Jaantzen married Grant C. Hutchinson May 1, 1892 in Kelso,WA. They divorced and gr grandmother married Irvin W. Urquhart. They divorced.

I would like to know about gr grandmothers parents. I know that her fathers name was Nels Jantzen and he was born somewhere Denmark and her mother was from somewhere in Norway. Mothers name is unknown. Where and when did they die, where are they buried?

Gr grandmother Eliza and her brother Freeman Jantzen are buried at Satsop cemetery.

Edward B.L. JAVORSKY, b. July 1914, apparently Elma area, d. Mar 1982, Lucerne, CA. Married Edith May WILDER, b. May 3, 1921, of Elma. Marriage took place in Pierce County Feb 26, 1936. Edith May's mother was Katherine WILDER, sister to Jim, Don & John TUTTLE of Elma.(Thank you to Ruth Tuttle!) Edward's mother Freda BLACKWOOD, b. Jan.1, 1899, (place unknown) Was living in Pickford Michigan in 1956, d. May 1967 Bakersfield, CA, never married his father, who was reported to have lived out Porter Creek. Possibly Bart Lee or Bartholomew Lee JAVORSKY. Edward never knew his father. We are still searching for one daughter of Edward and Edith Mae, born Sharon Lee Javorsky, adopted by Freda (Blackwood) SHARP. The two sons are Ivan James ( Jim) George, born Ivan Lee Javorsky and Charles David George, born Edward B.L. Javorsky, Jr. were raised by Charles and Esther George of Garden City, (McCleary) and then Elma. Information on Hugo JOHNSON of Elma, b. 30 Sep. 1886, d. Feb. 1967. If we have it right, he would have been married to a sister of Freda's. Any leads or information on any of the above would be of great help.
