Thanks Chris....I should have been more specific. I have a fair amount about J.O. up to his death in June of '53 in Collinsville, Ill and burial in St. Stephens near Newport....it's his family - wife Jessie and their children - 3 daughters I recall from memory - that are virtual blanks for me - no marriage certificate or references outside of city directories for Jessie and nothing re children. Thanks so much for your efforts to help, they're appreciated.
