More about Will & Laura


January 10, 2018


Your 100 years ago research may bring out the story about Will and Laura Claypool.

Will and Laura were neighbors and married in 1916, homesteading in Black Coulee.

Your recent 100 years ago column found that Laura Claypool died in childbirth in 1917.

Please note that both Will and the baby died in the 1918 flu epidemic. They were both buried in the same casket.

My home is Will’s homestead. My father bought the land from Will’s brother in 1942.
