I am researching the following families & appreciate all help offered. (Fulkerson, Roberts, Cato, Laurent, Cobb, Shuler)
Arthur Boyd Fulkerson born in KY, lived in the Decatur, ILL area many years. Am not sure of his birthdate, possibly somewhere around 1918. Do not know if he is living or not.
He married Helen Francis Laurent born 12-23-1918 born KY, she also lived in Decatur, ILL many years, moved to New York where she operated a bakery & died October 1984 in Churchville, NY. Helen first married Arthur & had 1 child, divorced him, married next Mickey Cato, had 4 children, divorced, remarried Arthur had 2 more children, divorced then married Richard Williams in Chicago? ILL. She was still married to Richard when she died. He died a short time later.
Children: 1. Carl Fulkerson; 2. Della Francis Cato; 3. Marianne Maxine Cato, 4. Barbara Sue Cato, 5. John Charles Cato; 6. William Arthur Fulkerson aka (Michael J. Roberts) 7. Lewis Morrow Fulkerson, born 8-18-1947. All children born Decatur, ILL.
The children were all raised in the
Decatur & Macon County Opportunity Home for Boys & Girls. The name was later changed to Webster Cantrel Hall, 1942 East Cantrel Street, Decatur, Illinois.
On weekends, holidays and summers the children spent their time with Aunt Bill
Anne (Cobb) Shuler (Was probably his Great Aunt as she was about 60 that he remembers.)
(Her brother was Brigadier General Cobb US Air Force Albuquerque, New Mexico)and Uncle Charles Henry Shuler, in Decatur, ILL.
