I am searching for information about my Grandfather, William Beecher Smith. I especially need to know his date of death. I believe he is buried in the Friday Harbor cemetary. I am also researching the Burr family. The Smith and Burr families lived on SanJuan from the mid 1800's into at least the 1940's.

Looking for info on the Cascadden Family on Orcas Island. Our father, Arthur Cascadden, graduated from a Eastsound High School in 1932. His father Fred, a farmer/carpenter is said to have had an apple orchard in Orcas possibly from 1921-33. Fred and his wife Anna Matilda may have given birth to their youngest daughter, Callie Cascadden on Jan 14,1922. Their other children were Sidney Eugene (aka"Gene") and Betty. Any assistance is appreciated.

I am looking for information on the JOHNSON, BUTLER and ROBINSON family names. All the information I have so far is that Alice Johnson was born in Roche Harbor on Sept 30, 1906, the daughter of John Alfred Johnson and Elsie Robinson. John Alfred Johnson was born in Stockholm and Elsie Robinson was born in England but grew up in Australia. They were married in Roche Harbor. Alice Johnson married Jackson Floto Butler presumably in Roche Harbor or Friday Harbor as their son Alfred Mason Butler was born 10 Jan 1926 at Friday Harbor on San Juan Island.
