Great Uncle Fred was a Foreman for a construction company. He was on assignment in Liberia when he passed away. At the moment, I don't know if it was an accident or homicide or natural causes.

He married Mabel DAUGHTERY (b. 17 Jun 1899 d. 19 Feb 1990). After Fred's death she and son Robert Louis "Bobbie" KOETHE moved to Georgia, then South Carolina. Some time thereafter, she married a Mr. O. H. JOHNSTON / JOHNSON (b.c1888 Sweden). I haven't found Mable's resting place yet.
