in Salem, Marion County, Oregon. (Per SSDI records, this Vera L. BROOKS obtained her SSAN in Ohio before
1951.) It s a long-shot and I only suspect that the above may be Vera (nee LAWRENCE) BROOKS who was a
daughter of Albert "Bert" Charles LAWRENCE and Daisy Dillard MONTGOMERY who was brn abt 1913 in Ohio
and had "LAWRENCE" siblings named Ruby, Albert H., Thelma H., Ruth M., Roy Norman and Gladys D. "My"
missing Vera LAWRENCE married a man named Roger BROOKS (b ? - d ?). Info from an obituary of the Vera
L. (nee) BROOKS who died on 28 Aug 1992 in Salem, Marion County, Oregon, would confirm or disprove her
poss identity as the Vera (nee LAWRENCE) BROOKS who was a daughter of my Great Aunt, Daisy Dillard (nee
MONTGOMERY) LAWRENCE. I last have positively identified my missing Vera LAWRENCE as 6 years onlt
in the 1930 census of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, where I believe she was probably born.

My grandfather: Henry Wallace MONROE  Born: 4/27/1907  Died: May 1986 Supposedly he lived in
Gates, Oregon and that town no longer exists as it was dammed up and flooded to make way for a dam.
I don't know if this is true. My grandfather always said he never had a birth certificate, but there has to
be some information.

My great grandfather: James MONROE    Born 3/1864 in Michigan (no town name) According to the
1920 census he was a logger living in Gates, Oregon.  I do not know his death date or year. He was married
to Effie WHITE when he passed away and I assume it's in Marion County, Oregon, but I don't know that information.

So anything you or any of your geneaologists might know--dates, cemetaries or anything would be helpful.
I can go back several generations on Effie White's side, but I am stonewalled on James Monroe.
No middle name or initial is ever mentioned.

2nd wife, they md. 13, Sep 1900 in Wayne Co., MO. Henry had 5 children, Lydia had never been married before,
together they had 4 more. 1) Minnie, b. 1887 MO; 2) Lucy E. b. 1891 MO; 3)Carrie E. b. 1894 MO; 4) Flora Alice

and Anna b. 1911 in OR. I have been looking for Henry for almost 30 years on any kind of record, except his father's
military pension application and his will. His father died in 1912 and named Henry in his will so I knew he was alive,
just didn't know where he moved to. In 1910 the first 8 children were listed on the Marion Co., OR census and
Anna was listed in 1920. In 1930 Lydia and Henry were alone, but Arthur lived next door. This was in Jefferson precinct,
pg 3B, Henry was #80-81 and Arthur was #81-82 This is not my direct line but I know who Henry's grandparents
& Parents were, if anyone there is looking for data on this family. Darlene WHITE COLE

I am looking for the Winters family that migrated to Oregon sometime between 1880-1894.  Son Ross E. Winters may have
been born in Marion Co., OR on Nov. 3, 1884. Other children included Lura Elizabeth born 1877 in Illinois, Minnie,
and probably Raymond and Harry who was born around 1880.

1895 Marion Co. census has Walter, Frank, R., L., Minnie, Charles, Louis and Margaret Winters listed together on
page 186 per online database. We do know that Lura Elizabeth attended Willamette Univ. in 1895; the university
confirmed for me.
The parents and Harry were definitely in Portland area in 1931 where my grandfather visited them. At the time of
Lura's death in Indiana, 1947, brother Ross and sister "Mrs. John Peterson" were located in Washington. California
death record for a Ross E. Winters, born Nov. 3, 1884, died Kings Co., CA Dec. 28, 1969. Record has him born in
Oregon, social security number issued in Washington.
