Hello, I don't know if this will help at all, but in the 1920 until 1960's my sister grand mother, Virginia Olive (Youle) Whitecotton was living in so. CA with her husband, Cleveland Hendricks Whitecotton, and her son.. Howard Fedelis Whitecotton in Imperial Valley CA> They lived for many years in Bellflower CA. Mr. Whitecotton was born in Ely Mo. just outside Hannibal Mo. and thier child Howard was born in 1909 in Hannibal MO. I suspect that Virginia was born in or near Hannibal MO.
