    Beckwith seems to be her married name. I haven't came across a marriage record yet to know what her maiden name was.

    This is what I've found on this lady. But seem to have hit a brick wall, maybe one of you guys has an idea about what to do next.

    I found an obit in the Tri city herald for Mrs. Ernest (Fay Lillie) Miller. Oct 2, 1973. It lists Mrs Forest (Elsie) Beckwith as her living daughter. It also lists sons Fred, Mac, William and Ernest Jr. and another daughter, Nellie for Mrs Miller. All of the children were listed as living in Pasco, WA except for William who was living in Weiser, Idaho.
    I believe this to be our Unclaimed's mother.

    All of the above is just my relaxed coastal Carolina opinion.

    Ok. So following the names that are listed in the obit, I found a Maxine Poore (Elsie's aunt's name) who, prior to her death in 2008, resided with a S. Poore in Anacortes, WA. I found a listing for someone with that name in Anacortes, WA. It also has a telephone number. I will email nemosmom with the info.
