Taplin Grave record transcribed by Jill Boles in 1999 from Robert Weatherly's work, with permission.

To reach the grave site, drive down Shumaker Grade from the Anatone country, turn left (east) at the foot of the grade. The grave site is about 100 yards up the first small point. The area had been farmed around the grave site, which is marked by a pile of rocks - no marker. The land is now owned by Ray M. Horton. Location of grave: NW 1/4 of NW 1/4, Sec 36, T7N, R45E, W.M.

Oscar Taplin relates that buried there before 1896 is the first wife of Clarence Taplin. She had had a difficult childbirth, and the baby had died. Her husband had ridden to Asotin for a doctor, but she was dead when they returned.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
