I am wondering if you ever got any answers to your query???? You didn't post an email address..I know it is an old posting, but would like to know if you ever got the information you asked for. What about your mother? Did she re-marry?
I think I remember when this happened....but am not sure if I read it or if I just remember the cousins talking about it.
I used to spend summers with my cousins (WEBB) who lived at both Bowie and San Simon. I will ask them if they know anything at all about this...I am sure they will. Only one of them still lives in the area....the rest are gone now.
A few of my cousins are buried at Desert Rest Cem. If you don't live close enough, I can try to find his grave, and if there is a stone, I can get a photo for you. (what State are you in?) I am trying to remember what cafe this was in.......all three of my cousins worked in cafe's there......wish I could remember the name of the cafe....it was on the highway right at the western edge of town.think the building is still there...there was a couple of cafe's tho back in those days...I think even a "Tee Pee" shaped one.......can't remember.
Please let me know.....not sure exactly what it is that you want to know, but willing to make inquiries....
