Message Board Post:
I am looking for two brothers who moved east across the Oregon/Idaho border. James Harvill settled near New Plymouth area and was living there in the 1920's to 1930's (at least). His brother, Arche was killed in a trucking accident in 1935 near Cambridge, ID. I am looking for information on them and on any of their descendants. Thank you.
