In 1935, John Will DRAKE died of TB in the Veterans' Hospital in Muskogee.He lived at 900 North B St., McAlester when he died.He is buried in the OakHIll Cemetery in McAlester. I have a photo of his tombstone, a government erected one, his obit, and his 1907 marriage to Josie Pitchlyn-Kore. In his obit his wife (unnamed) survived him.
John was in the OK 126 Spruce Sq. during WWI.Does anyone have a unit history on this outfit?
I don't know if Josie remarried or what?Are there any sort of records that could mention Josie after 1935?City directories, old phone books, indexes, cemetery records?
I have petitioned the NARA but they don't have his records, of course.His will either have been burned at the VA fire or not. Shirley Maynard Hampton, VA
