Mystery Photo - Joe L. Clift - Part 3 - Footnote Friday

Good news! Joe's son Walter got married! Where there's a marriage, sometimes there are children. I wonder...

Little Joe Clift had a son, Walter F. Clift, who was born about 1908 in Washington State1.

  1. LDS Familysearch WA State Death Certificate Records show Joseph Lamm Clift died 17b July 1960 in Yakima. Both of Joseph's parents are buried in the Tahoma Cemetery in Yakima and pictures of the headstones are on the Find a Grave website. A biography of Joseph can be found on Rootsweb Yakima County, WA web site biographies. Also same bio. is found in the History of the Yakima Valley by Lyman, pg. 331.

  2. Thank you Anonymous, who I think is Linda. I saw the pictures on Find a Grave, but I haven't been to the Rootsweb site. Going there now. :)
