Joe Larin captured this group cleaning up at the Mashel Prairie Indian Cemetery Shaker Church. Anyone have any names?

The Indian Henry grave monument is there today in La Grande, Wash.

This isn’t something new to Eatonville. In 2005, Eagle Scouts Zach Ingalls and Ryan Ames did another makeover. The story Is in Eatonville News, just click here. This time around there was technology used to find the sites of the other Native Americans so that crosses could memorialize them.

Mark Parton says, “The two photos from 1966 look like Tom Carlson and two Nelson boys. The lower one with three people I beleive the blond boy is Tom Carlson. The larger group looks like the two Nelson boys on the right if Im not mistaken.”
