Renee, If Esau died in 1920, then I would take a guess and say he was buried in the African-American section of the Roslyn cemetery. I have been there several times and it still amazes me. It's like several cemeteries in one. There are many ethic groups that have their own little portion of the Roslyn Cemetery. I take it that Esau would have been a Miner and would came as a replacement worker when the strike was going on. I believe there is still some African-Americans who's ancestors worked the mines and are still living in the Roslyn area, but I not sure. You need to look at the Washington state death index to get an exact date, or send away for his death certificate from the State.
