States: Oregon: Washington
Laura (a.k.a. Lauretta) was the daughter of Clark and Caroline (Ingles) Freeman; stepdaughter of Jesse Cornelius; married Marquis Dee Montgomery in 1881; she is my great-grandmother. Laura was born in Cornelius and resided in Oregon until at least 1894. I have been searching for her for several years. The puzzling thing is that I recently found notice of her death (Dec. 28, 1898) published in the San Francisco Daily Morning Call and the San Franciso Bulletin using her birth name (Freeman). It was clearly a match to my Laura because the notice read, "...daughter of Mrs. C. CORNELIUS, a native of Oregon." Can anyone help me find Laura by pointing me in the direction of an obituary, cemetery record or related family history? The records could be under the Name Laura (Lauretta)Freeman, Cornelius, or Montgomery. Her whereabouts is mystery waiting to be solved. Hopefully in my lifetime :-)
