" I have a photo of a baseball team from Coos Bay, Oregon. My great grandfather Irvin Urquhart is in this photo along with 9 others. I would would like to discover who the others are and who they played for. Their uniforms day (H.L.Co.) on the front of them. Of the 10 members one must be the coach, he is in a suit.  Please contact me if you would like a scanned copy of this photo. Thank you, Cathy"

I'm searching for information on Charles, Susan, and Cella Webb (their daughter).  They were living in Colquille in the 1910 census. Susan died on 12 Aug 1910
and Cella died shortly after on 15 Sep 1910. The reason fortheir deaths so close together is unknown.  Charles continued to live in Coquille according to the
1920 & 1930 census, but I can't find anything after that. Would there be obituaries in 1910?  Any small bit of information would be helpful.
Thank you.    M Graff

I  am looking for info about John A. Maiefski and his wife, Nellie. 
John and Nellie were both born in Nebraska and moved to Oregon about 1926, I think.  John died abt 2 Jul 1969, and Nellie died 26 Oct 1993 at North Bend, Coos County, Oregon.  I think John was a successful businessman, and perhaps owned a trailer park.  I am interested in knowing whether or not John and Nellie had any children, and if not, who were their close friends who might have some pictures of them?  I would be happy to share what info I have about John's family in return for any assistance.  Thanks, Laura

I have a certified copy, ordered by mistake, of the death certificate for Andrew J. WILSON, who died in Coquille, Coos County, on 3/26/1920, age 82 years, 2 months, 7 days.  He was a farmer, born in Ohio.  His father was John Wilson, born in Ireland. Mother's maiden name "not known."  His wife's name was Mary Wilson.  Informant for the death certificate was J.E. Wilson.
If you are descended from Mr. Wilson and would like to have this certificate, I will be happy to mail it to you.
