Hollis B. Pincock, Jr. May 8, 2002
The family came to Teton, Sugar City and Rexburg in the late 1860's from Ogden, Utah. I have loads of genealogical and historical information. The family also owned Pincock Hot Springs (now Green River Hot Springs) for years in the early 1910's to 30's/40's.

I am trying to locate something about my family.  My mother, Tolia ADAIR was born on Warm River in 1909.  As I understand, her parents Itolia Rebecca Adair and Randolph Adair had a home-stead on Warm River as well as a store/saloon.  The railroad was being built about 1916 (am guessing) and would take part of there land and they left the Warm River area.   Any help, ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated.  Thank you

I am doing research into my family background and am trying find information about Lemuel Jerome RICE who died in 1913 at St. Anthony.  He is buried in the Parker Cemetery.  I am wondering if he had a will and if that will was probated.  It is my understanding that he had a large family and that his holdings would have been divided in some way between them.  Can you suggest a way that I can found out about him and his heirs without making a trip to Idaho. He is my great grandfather, but I know little about him.  I would be interested in finding someone who could look up original documents for me.

I am looking for a Melvina (LYONS) BAKER who died in Ashton, Fremont County, Idaho in March of 1921. She had married Robert BAKER in September 1915 and I have been told she died in childbirth. I have reason to believe that the baby lived, but can you tell me what cemeteries would have been in use in 1921 in Ashton. I don't know if Melvina and Robert BAKER had other children between 1915 and 1921. I have found a Robert Oscar BAKER who died in July 1945, who I suspect was Melvina's husband, and he possibly may have remarried after Melvina died. I also found a Robert Oscar BAKER in the 1917-1919 Draft Registrations, that I also suspect was Melvina's husband. I would like to find an obituary for Melvina, so am hoping you can tell me what  newspapers  were being published around in 1921 in Ashton or Fremont County.  Hoping you can lead me to a cemetery and a newspaper to further research Melvina.

Searching information about an Erma (MEREDITH) HOPKINS, b in Kosciusko Co. IN.  She had a sister Ruth who married a man by the name of HANANALT.  At the time of her Mother's death in St. Anthony, ID (19 Sep 1951), she and her sister were also residing there.  Erma was a theatre organist in La Porte County, IN until at least 1930. To complete a history of our theatre organ, I am seeking information about Erma.  If there is an obituary or any other information about her available, it would be appreciated.

I'm searching for my ggrandmother Mary Allice Mains, or possibly Nancy Allice.  She was last listed on a 1885 census living in Fremont Co. Ia.  She reportedly died that year leaving 3 small children.  Is there any way to check out Clarke County Cemeteries?  She was born in Clarke Co. in approx. 1861 and she has Conner relatives buried there.  We've pretty much exhausted records in Fremont Co.
