We then suddenly hear "Steve" goes west in 1930 and ends up with death in Idaho in Boise.A bit of of those years and history to prove would help.You might have that data, but for me, a LONG time genealogist with prove it mentality, needs the proof.Otherwise, I'd look for Perley in 1930, not "Steve" in 1986.You may have the info, I did not...
BUT, LOCAL researchers are so much better to help than someone out in Washington State, both the other "researcher" and I..The Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness has volunteers in Ada County. http://www.raogk.org/idaho.htmhttp://www.raogk.org/idaho.htmRead the guidelines FIRST.
