35728Re: [S-R] New Member - Scorby/Scerba/Scorba and Bartko
- Apr 9, 2013Karen - I have used that particular web site quite a lot, as my
husband's family is almost all in the area of Coos and Curry County.
Also we have visited the Bandon Museum, a really fine small museum - one
of the best I have been to and I am a great fan of museums. They
provided me with many obits - very few Scorby obits, though. None for
John. Or Jessie, his second wife.
Or third - there is an outside chance he married a woman named Mabel
Holmes at a very young age in Streator. Then they went to Colorado,
divorced , went back to Streator separately, and then John went to
Washington state and then Oregon. I still need to order that divorce
record. I do have the marriage record and it looks to be yet another
It does strike me, though, that I have not visited either the Bandon or
the Coquille Libraries, and I ought to do that. We are in Bandon a few
times a year, as my husband's parents live there. I will make a point
to do that soon. Thank you for pointing me in that direction. I have
found a great deal of interest in searching microfilms of the old
newspapers from the Wisconsin town where my father's family came from -
it has been fascinating. You learn things you can't learn any other way.
