Thanks so much, metaphor, for going through the trouble of copying down this information for me. I recently found the 1942 record, and had found the 1918 record when those were published. This guy continues to be elusive--at every step I get another morsel of information but then the trail stops again. Now I'm trying to track down this Reba Bowen, as well as any other records of John in Tacoma.
Thanks again for your kindness!
