Supposedly, Wells M. Cook, the husband of Avis Foxwell Cook, and their four young sons who died young are buried in the Yorkville Cemetery. His October 1910 obituary says that, at his request, he was to be buried there along with his children who predeceased him. He, himself, actually died in Minnesota, but was apparently brought back to Yorkville for burial.
I could not find his name in the online listing of burials in Yorkville Cemetery...nor could I find a listing of burials for the four young sons who died young. Does anyone have access to a resource that would verify that they are actually buried in Yorkville Cemetery? I would like to learn the names of the four little boys. Is Avis Foxwell Cook buried there also? She, too, died in Minnesota in 1914, but her memorial/obit in the Racine paper did not say where she was buried. She was the daughter of John and Lucy Philena Briggs Foxwell, of Yorkville.
One other puzzling thing...I cannot find her on the 1870 census. She is not with her parents, and she was not married yet to Wells M. Cook..so where is she? The details of her life [and her husband's] are sketchy at best. I'd be interested in any information about this couple. Avis was the sister of my great-grandfather, William Foxwell, and therefore my great-grandaunt.
