Re: Starkey, Sherman Kansas
Long time.I know we have been in contact before but never really got to share a lot of info.I don't know if you have this or not but here is a city directory listing:
Sherman and his wife, Esther (BELLAMY) and two children are listed in the 1926 LaSalle-Peru (Illinois) City Directory. They
were living at 1715 Brewster Street, Peru. This is the same address given for his mom during this year. He was working as a
flagman at this time.
In the 1926 Peru City Directory, their address is listed as 1715 1/2 Brewster Street, Peru. Sherman is listed here as a laborer.
