Virgil C Cook, 156872158
You sent a couple of EDITS to me regarding Virgil's middle name and names of his parents with links to their burial location. You listed middle name as Charles and parents as Paul Ottomar Cook and Eva Eliza Krout Corwin.

In doing some research, I found what looks like more than one Virgil C. Cook. His obituary didn't provide his middle name or names of parents. It listed his birthplace as Shambaugh, Iowa, but an "Iowa, Births and Christenings Index" showed a Virgil C. Cook, born 24 June 1901 in Harlan, Shelby [County], Iowa, with parents as Paul O. Cook and Eva Kraut [Krout]. Two possible marriages, Washington, Marriage Records: Vergil Charlis Cook to Lillian Clera Haddix, 2 June 1923, Vancouver, Clark County, Washington; C. W. Cook to Georgia Burk, 8 Dec. 1945 in Clark County, Washington. Both listed Paul and Eva as his parents.

Please provide sources for the EDIT information you sent me.

Vernon is the maternal grandfather of some of my cousins. They don't know much about him and would like to know more. I believe he may have been in the military during WWII. Anyone who has info on him please contact me.

Hi Ellen, Thank you so much for searching for Virginia Halstead's grave. Always makes me sad to learn that there is no marker. It's surprising to me how many people don't have them. Appreciate the lovely picture of her resting place. Thanks again. Juelette Fadness

Jacobs Memorial
Hello: I have seen your memorials of Morris Jacobs and his family in Portland's Jewish Cemetary in

All memorials have fotos of the tombstones, except that of Sarah and Eda Jacobs. Do you know if these tomstones dont exist? or its just there is no photo of them?

Thanks very much, your work is very useful for our family! Santiago Eder
