Looking for info on the Thomas H ("Frank")Cosby family who is shown in the Bakersfield City Directory for 1940; 1941; 1943; 1944; 1946. They originally lived in Oklahoma and Ft. Worth TX before coming to CA.
Thomas H (nicknamed Frank)and wife Anna Pearl Billington Cosby had 2 children...Marie born ca 1823 OK and Thomas J born ca 1924 in TX. Lived at various times on California AV, W Truxton Ave; Richland St and Tulare street.
I know these 2 children must have gone to school in Bakersfield and I'm hoping someone has access to school yearbooks or records that will prove this.
Thomas J Cosby is thought to have married 3 times. First to a Margot J Dunnahoo/or Hogue; Floy G Biggs/or Henson and Bernice L McCracken/or Preszler. He died in 1981 and is buried in Greenlawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Bakersfield. His mother is also buried there but I can't find the grave site for his father who died Nov 4, 1949; guessing he also died in Kern Co CA.
I suppose it's possible that Thomas H (Frank) and Anna Pearl might have divorced and Frank moved on to another location but I haven't been able to find a divorce record.
As for Marie, without a husband's surname, if she ever married, I have been unable to find anything more on her.
