Claudia J Broderson

My name is Ray H. Yarnell, I live in Washington State and my father,
Herbert Robert Yarnell, and Grandfather, Chesley John Yarnell lived in
Whitman County which is also called the "Palouse Country" for a unknown
period of time, I think around 1900. My dad talked about harvesting
wheat with big teams of horses there.

According to the Certificate of Death for my Grandfather, it says he was
born in Tennessee, no town or county given. He was born April 14,
1874. No first names of parents are listed. It also says he lived in
Spokane for about 49 years. He died April 3, 1964. His wife was Mae
(McCoy) Yarnell.

I have sent for a birth certificate from the State of Tennessee for
Chesley, hopefully I'll get one and it will have his parents information on
it. I don't have any information on any brothers or sisters Chesley may
have had.

My father, Herbert R. Yarnell was born if West Plains, MO. which
according to the map is only about 20 miles from Koshkonong, MO. where
you said the Knox County Yarnell's migrated to. Do you suppose we are
