Hi, I am in Affton, Mo which is just south of St. Louis.I am not even sure that Arthur was in fact his first name.I also did not have a lead yet on Mary's last name.I was going to look for a possible death certificate for her or her one daughter who lived into the 1930's, then I came across your posting. I have been doing this for over 20 years and just never spent much time on my father's family tree. I took it to Arthur and Mary and then let it go untouched for several years.
Margaret V. Blake married Anderson Williams.They moved to CA and are both buried there. Anderson served in the civil war.Margaret was married twice. Her first husband died in the war. I have Anderson's complete pension and military file from the National Archives.
I am more than willing to share information with you. ST
