Searching for any family member of Georgia Phifer Brooks and Jake Phifer her son. Jake was born in Nebraska around 1901. I don't know who Georgia's first husband was, nor do I know where they lived in Nebraska, except possibly near the Colorado border. Georgia's first husband died I suppose and Georgia was married to my great-great-uncle James Nathaniel "Nat" Brooks, who was a goldminer. James was also a widow and had his own daughter, Verna or Vernie Brooks, born around 1906 in Colorado. Later the family moved to Seattle, Washington by 1920. James and Georgia got a divorce sometime during the 1920's and James later died in 1929 and was buried in Port Townsend, Washington. I don't know what happened to Jake, Georgia, or Verna. I'm essentially trying to find out what happened to Verna, but if I can find one of the Phifers, then maybe they might know. Can anybody help me?
