thanks for the information, that gives me a lot more on the Rooks, I have been trying for months to find a marriage record for Emma Rook and George Forddred and boy is it hard, I am not even sure where and when they met, I do know they lived in Tacoma because that is where my grandmother was born and I know they were in Canada since James was born there. I have no idea what became of George Forddred-from what we were told was that he left Emma because my grandmother had been born deaf, Emma married John James Eden in Canada where James was born and her marriage license says widow but I also can't find a death record for George Forddred. Thanks again for your help Teri
