I was intrigued with your query about Pearl Simmons who married Frank Foster. My first place to search was the Southeast Missourian newspaper index for 1945. I found the listing and copied the obit. It states she died of pneumonia in a Cape Girardeau Hospital and was born on 7 Oct 1892. It lists her children and also stated her husband passed away in April 1944. This I found in the 17 March 1945 newspaper - and he was buried in Advance, MO!!! Furthur research showed Frank (1889-1945) buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery near Advance, MO. I do not know if this is the right Frank Foster as a Frank R. Foster - wife was Martha - died in 1935. (too many Frank Fosters)

I enjoy doing genealogy and would like for you to have Pearl Foster's obit. You can send me your address at and I will mail it free of charge. If I can assist you with any genealogy question in Cape Girardeau County - PLEASE ask!
