Wow...you are really good at this. Thank you for your help. I thought he was in the first war, but didn't know for sure. The draft card is a nice piece of information to add.
My father, Michael W. Cooley married Kathleen O'Brien in Louisiana.
His father was Edward M. Cooley, whom married Emily Louise Ellis.
His father (my G-Grandfater) was Solomon D. Cooley. It very well may be the case that his mother was remarried to a Johnson. I don't know for sure but it makes sense, why else would someone list their mother by their maiden name.
I have no more information on Solomon as far as his brothers and sisters or parents. The best I would be able to provide would be his brother/sisters-in-law's info. From looking at the information on the Friendship Cemetery page, his wife's name may have been Lovena Myers. I know she was remarried a few times either before or after Solomon. I believe she was married to a Chester A. Griffin and Jay B. Allen, and to a Conrad B. Lipe later in life. They always called her Nean, but I have seen it written Lorine and Lorenia also.
Nean (Lovena) Myers is of the Pierre LeMire lineage. Which I have. I am just having trouble with the men in my family.
Thanks again. The dates really fill in some gaps for me too.
