"A History of Pasco"

"Railroads, Reclamation And the River, A History of Pasco" - Full Name Index

How to Navigate:

Here are the basic rules used while indexing this book (graciously indexed by Susan Davis Faulkner).
  • All titles have been dropped. There are no Captain, Colonel, or Dr. Each full name is indexed as it appears less these titles.
  • If no first name is given, or can not be derived from the surrounding text, only the last name has been indexed.
  • A * next to the page number means that the name was found in a caption of a photo. It does not mean, necessarily, that a photo of this person is on this page. If a person’s name is mentioned in the caption there is a good chance that the name is also mentioned in the text of the page. Captions of photos include credit to the contributor. These names were not indexed.
  • A woman’s name is indexed just as it is printed. Many women in this book have multiple names (i.e., Alice Hogan West) but they are only indexed under the printed surname (i.e., West).
  • Names of business may be included in index if it could reasonably be assumed that the business was named after a local owner.
  • No other assumptions were made. A name is indexed as it was typed.
