Notes about "Indian Jim" in Amity Cemetary.
Dear Doug and Al,

            I asked my friend Doris about Indian Jim.    
Doris is the cemetery director and keeps track of the 
history of some of the people buried there.  Indian Jim 
lived in Amity and pitched his tent where the city park is 
now.  His grandfather fought in the war between the Yamhill 
Indians and the Warm Spring Indians.   The Warm Spring 
Indians lived in a rather harsh environment and thought the 
Yamhills had it easy as they had salmon from the ocean and 
river, berries and fruit from the trees.   Thus the battle 
to drive out the Yamhills and the Warm Springs Indians to 
take over their territory.  The Yamhills won and retained 
their land.  In honor of Indian Jim's grandfather, the 
veterans put a flag on his grave.   Indian Jim was a 
favorite of the Amity children, who enjoyed his stories, and 
he taught them to make bow and arrows and other Indian 
skills.   They built a wooden fort up in the hills and the 
children would play battles between the Yamhill and Warm 
Spring Indians.   One morning they found Indian Jim dead 
and they buried him in the "way back of the cemetery" 
because he was not acceptable to the regular Amity people.   
The children came and decorated his grave with colorful 
rocks and feathers.   He had died several before Nancy 
Hodge, so they were relegated to quarantined part of the 
cemetery.  Each year some of the Amity people put flowers 
on the grave.

         So, that is the rest of the story.
