Note about the above: I don't know who I would get in touch with about the Clark cemetery page on the last name Canady, but it states that my great grandmother,  Anne Elizabeth Gill, married to Capt. Bates Kanada, is buried at Copeland Cemetery, which is incorrect.  She died in Portland, Oregon and is buried at the Rose City Cemetery there.  It also states that Capt. Kanada moved to Montana alone, but actually they went together, living in Belt Township, MT until his death, at which time Anne Elizabeth Gill Kanada continued on to Portland, Oregon with her daughter Lucy Kanada Light, and her son-in-law William Granville Light.  Harriet Light
