WOW! Thanks K. Haefner for all of the great info. I had found some of this already but you have really gone the extra mile for me. Thank You. My grandmother was Fay DeShanaway and her father was Lafayette DeShanaway (Duchenois) I have connected with some of the DeShanaway family and collected a bit of material. I now have made the connection to Fay's mother's family, but there is still a mystery. I am trying to find where in Montana that Fay DeShanaway was born. Since she was born the year before they start birth records I have no clue. I have had many lookup people hunt for her in various places in Montana. No luck. They did live in Kalispell and I had found Lafayette in a soldiers home there but her birth is a mystery and how she and her sister Helen landed up living with other families in Spokane while their mother is a wealthy woman living in California is haunting. I was hoping to find family members that might be able to tell me. My grandmother,Fay,died at the age of 22 in Omak WA. 1929.
