THIS ANSWER MY QUESTIONS...BUT STILL NOT HELPFUL
FOR REFERENCE AGAIN World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
Name: Soloman David Cooley City: Not Stated County: Evangeline State: Louisiana Birthplace: Louisiana Birth Date: 19 Jun 1896 Roll: 1684673 DraftBoard: 0 EMPLOYER: C W PRITCHETT NEAREST RELATIVE: MRS NANCY JOHNSON*** SIGNED THIS: S D COOLEY
***HE SHOWS HER AS MRS JOHNSON NOT COOLEY...SO COULD THAT MEAN SHE REMARRIED TO A JPHNSON?
I DID CONFIRM THERE WAS A... LOUISIANA DEATH INDEX C.W. Pritchett 25 May 1926 1858Evangeline68
I THINK HIS FULL NAME IS CHARLES W PRITCHETT, LANDOWNER IN EVANGELINE LA.
I CANNOT EVEN FIND A RECORD OF EDWARD MILDRED COOLEY IN THE 1930 CENSUS ANYWHERE, LET ALONE SOLOMON/SOLOMAN COOLEY UNDER ANY COMBINATION OF THE NAMES.
ANY OTHER COOLEY NAMES THAT MIGHT LEAD TO CLUES...SOLOMON'S BROTHER OR SISTERS COUSINS ETC?
