Grayson burials in Elma, Gray's Harbor Co, WA

Henry L. Grayson, b 1-21-1839, m abt 1866 Elizabeth Ann Webb, b 1848. He was the son of John Taylor Grayson and Sarah Fricks.

Children of Henry & Elizabeth included Albert S., Edward C., Lewis Napoleon, Virginia Octavia, Endora, Essie Pinus, Hesterly R., and Jessie E.

Most of the Internet information I've seen about Henry & Elizabeth have them dying in the 1800's with Elizabeth dying in 1875 before their last children were born.

I located a cemetery listing for the town of Elma in Gray's Harbor Co, WA at the following website:
http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/wa/graysharbor/cemetery/elmaodd1.txt

Some of the tombstones in this cemetery were for Henry L. Grayson (1838-1918) having a shared marker with Elizabeth A. Grayson (1848-1919). Also buried there was Hesterly R. Grayson (1875-1956). His stone had the inscription "Father, In God's Care" which indicates that he must have had a family.

These burials seem to indicate that Henry & Elizabeth lived longer than previously thought and had moved to WA as did their son Hesterly.

The Fricks family is my ancestral line and I was researching Sarah Fricks Grayson as a collateral family member. If anyone needs Fricks information on her, I'll be happy to share. If anyone can shed light on correct death dates for Henry L. & Elizabeth or provide names of descendants, please let me know.
