"I have made a copy of the list of Poor Farm Cremations,
Seattle (King County),1912. To give due credit, these were transcribed by
Ron Cross in 1984 for the Seattle Genealogical Society, which is where I made my
copy. The King County Poor Farm was located at 6737 Corson Ave., in Seattle, and
this may be the address you see on a death certificate as the place of death.
These people were exhumed during the months of November and December, 1912, and
all but one were cremated. Some had identifying information, some did not,
unfortunately. I would be glad to check the list for anyone who thinks they may
have an ancestor, who was laid to rest in this manner."
