Died June 07,1941.
Place of death: Orma,Calhoun Co,WV.
Cause Of Death: Appohlexy.

Isabell BROOKS COTTRILL/COTTRELL WESTFALL is buried as Isabell COTTRELL in Calhoun Co,WV.
Her second husband is a Charlie WESTFALL nothing else is known about him.

I have tried to get her birth certificate in Braxton Co,WV but they didn't have it.

I looking for Isabell's Brooks: parents John BROWN & MOTHER from BRAXTON CO, WV where she was born.
I think she was adopted or illegimated child.
Any information is appreciated on on these great grandparents.
