Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired law enforcement and military (Marines and Air Force Reserves) currently in a nursing career.
I collect WWI, WWII and Vietnam era uniforms, medals, etc as my main hobby but also dabble in autographs and of course work on the family tree from time to time. Most of the memorials I have created are of family or very good friends. But, I also build memorials or write bio's for veterans who do not have a memorial or bio already built - but should have. I live in Tulsa, OK.

RE: Oscar St.John Armes
I found Dorothea's date of birth, 15 Sep 1883, in the Iowa, Births and Christenings Index, 1800-1999:

I haven't been able to find her date of death, although it was after Oscar's death in 1952 (she's listed as his surviving spouse in his obit

I haven't come across her burial information.

Their daughter Sarah was born in 1907 and died in 1992 ( It appears that she never married.

I'm related to Dorothea -- she is my first cousin twice removed. Her mother's sister Emma is my great grandmother. I am the grandchild of her son Francis Aloysius Drew by his daughter Adelaide Anderson Drew. My maiden name is Moira Drew Masterson.

I'll let you know if I uncover any more facts about Dorothea, Oscar or Sarah.

Lieut Guy W Cobb Jr
I've now added a memorial for his mother. I found her obituary today and it says she's buried at Oaklawn.

RE: Lieut Guy W Cobb Jr
I haven't been able to find burial info on either his mother or sister. His mother's maiden name was "Nolen". The date of her death is documented in a biography about his father who was a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (sadly, I didn't record the source well enough in my notes to be able to find the original again):
Cobb, Guy William [sic]; ASCE Fellow (1890 - 1970), American Society of Civil Engineers: "In 1914 he married M'Belle Nolan [sic].... Mrs Cobb preceded her husband in death on August 19, 1965."

Lieut Guy W Cobb Jr
Re: Lieut Guy W. Cobb, Jr. who died in 1944. Regarding his sister, you've written on his memorial that "The Cobb's had a daughter, Minnie B. Cobb, who was abt 7 years older than Guy." Guy Cobb Jr.'s sister was Minnie Bertha "Bee" Cobb who was born March 25, 1915 at Jonesboro, Ark. She married Charles McGraw on March 31, 1939 at Pope County, Arkansas. Minnie passed away on March 3, 1999. The last reported residence on her SSDI is Searcy, White County, Arkansas.

Oma Austin King - Young Gravelly Cemetery
Edgar King was first married to Oma Austin (1885-1902). She was 17 and died in childbirth with her first child, Odell King. Info from Mary Jo King Gossage, daughter to Odell. Also, she is buried at Bluffton and I'm trying to get her moved on Find A Grave from Young Gravelly to Bluffton.

Pete Woolery - 68525928
Thanks for the reply! I also suspected that his name might not actually be Pete Woolery when I couldn't find anything on him.

Pete Woolery - 68525928
I am researching the Woolery surname. Can you please provide more information about Pete Woolery - 68525928. If not birth, death, or burial information, perhaps where he lived?

Thank you,Jennifer
