Arthur Jerome Albrook
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct., 1870
Kansas, USA
Death: Mar. 15, 1938
Codington County
South Dakota, USA

He was the adopted son of Ezra Charles Albrook. He was the natural son of Henry Higgins and Isabella K. Bourdette. Isabella divorced her first husband, Henry Higgins on the grounds of abandonment shortly before her marriage to Mr. Albrook.

Arthur Albrook was active in the publishing business in a variety of positions beginning his career while a teenager.

Arthur discovered he was adopted when his mother applied for a Civil War pension based on the service of her second husband, Ezra C. Albrook. Arthur's deposition as to his parentage is heart breaking as he discovers in a public courtroom through questioning by an investigator for the Pensions Department that he was not the natural son of Ezra C. Abrook. His mother, Isabella, had revealed this fact to the investigator, but never discussed it with her son.
