    Anyone here from any of the congregations on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State, such as Forks, Port Angeles or Sequim?

    Hi Carmel, We aren't from there (but then you know that, don't you?)

    Just thought I would tell you that my great grandfather and two of his brothers homesteaded several sections of land in Forks. The family name is all over that area. Maxfield Homestead Road is one of them. The descendants of one of his brothers still live on the land too. My great grandfather raised his children there on the Quillayute reservation, and then moved to Seattle in 1910, and homesteaded more land in West Seattle.

    G'day Mulan,

    That family tree you're working on is going to be a good read, perhaps destined for a story for publication?

    Cheers, Ozzie

    P.S. you and the family were in our thoughts as we enjoyed another meal at the apostate restaurant tonite! (with a Rosemount Shiraz)

    Were you related to the Maxwell that was a chiropracter in Bremerton??
