Thank you for this photo. I hope to be able to go Ft. Simcoe next year. .
Are you related to Nathan? I never meet any of his family.

Yes, I am a great great great grandson of Nath Olney and had my picture taken at his burial site at Fort Simcoe when I was a young boy. He was a great man as was my father who was raised on the Olney Ranch that was once one third of the city of Toppenish. He became the head Chief Justice of the Yakama Indian Nation and was a well respected person of great interest in his own right. Thanks for your work on his history! FYI, I have spent many years of my life in tracing the Olney family genealogy.
You are most welcome in what I have done for your family. I've "met" Nathan while doing work on Maj. Granville Haller who was stationed at Ft. Dalles.
Hi, I just contacted you by email. I am related to Nathan Olney.
