CORY. Looking for an obituary or other record of death for Isac (Ike) CORY, who lived in the town of Monroe, WA and is believed to have died there in 1940, aged about 75 years. A widower from Fargo, North Dakota (possibly where he was born), Ike left Fargo for California around 1904, leaving his 13-year old son, Joseph, behind. Some time later, Ike left California and went north to Monroe, WA. The 13-year old son, Joseph Alby CORY, stayed in Fargo long enough to grow up, marry, and have several children and grandchildren (he died in Portland, OR in 1976). The descendants of Isac (Ike) CORY and Amelia Selberg (his deceased wife from Fargo, ND) would now like to learn as much as possible about that ancestor. If someone with access to the Death Index for 1940 would be so kind as to look up Isac (Ike) CORY, his long-lost family would be extremely grateful. Any information at all, of course, would be appreciated. Thank you.

Desperately seeking descendants of Clifford Edward MONROE b.1892 Seattle and wife Neva BLAKELY. Clifford died in Everett in 1967. His funeral home record lists children Armond or Armand, Donald and Marda. Donald was living in Everett at the time, Marda was living in Miami, Florida and Armand was in the Air Force. Clifford had step-children named Virginia SWANSON BEST MASTERMAN, (lived in Granite Falls, WA in 1967) Carl SWANSON (lived in Seattle) and Charles SWANSON. I believe Charles preceded Clifford in death. All these children would have been born before 1943 with the SWANSONs before 1931. (Clifford and Neva's son Clifford, Jr. (1931-1943) drowned at the YMCA and his brothers, sister and half-siblings are listed on his funeral home record.)

I am looking for RICHARD HESSE, b Oct 1867. He homesteaded in South Dakota, but he, his wife, and daughter headed west, and when they sold the SD homestead in 1912, they did so from Snohomish County. Richard's wife, DINA JANISCH HESSE, died in May 1915 in Wenatchee and he reported on the death certificate that they had been in Wenatchee since Aug 1914. His wife was buried in Snohomish County. They had a daughter, MATHILDA HESSE, b. Jul 18, 1899, Waubay, SD. Two word-of-mouth clues about Mathilda is that she was well-educated and possibly lived part of her time in Europe. What happened to Richard and Mathilda?

Looking for information on William D. McCabe b. Ripley Co., Ind in 1847. He and his mother and father (Alexander and Rodah Knapp McCabe), and a brother Perry Hill McCabe came west after 1860. Perry H. Died in Polk Co., Ore in 1903. I know by old genealogy that William died in N.W. Wa., and he had at least 2 children Ivy Pearl and Ed. Perry was 7 years older than William so he may have died earlier than 1903 or later. Can anyone be of assistance? I realize I have very little info but I am hoping someone will help.Perry left an estate in Ore., so William probably did also. Is there a database online?
