Hi Jean -- I believe your Charles Looker was my great-great uncle, which would have been Harrison Blaine Looker's brother. His mother was Alice Myers (possible Van Myra), who died in a fire in New York City on or about 12/23/1908 -- I have copies of newspaper articles - it was written up in newspapers all up and down the east coast as a "spectacular rescue" unfortunately, she died as a result of her burns. Her Husband, Charles Looker, abandon the family - I've found records of him in the Los Angeles area about 1914, and a death certificate for 1915 (Los Angeles County) -- I was curious if anyone had gotten any further back than that.
I'll give you the run-down on that side of the family, if you could fill me in on your side. Alice and Charles (Sr.) had 2 children; Charles L and Harrison B -- Harrison married Myrtle May Fountain and had two children - Charles and Bryce; Bryce married Frances Q. LeBlance and had 3 children - Robert (m. Aleta Gerauld? - 4 Childrend, Susan (m. Mark ?), Bryce (m/d - Lorilie, Robert & Aleta), Daniel and Maryanne (m. Ian Goldbert - 2 children Mariah and Macy) Cynthia (m. Peter Victory - 3 children - Kathleen (m. Robert Hannisian - 1 child, Aurora); Thomas and Joseph; and Alice (m. William Zolla - 3 children, Lori (m. Mark Sollock) Matt (m. Cynthia ?) and Dianne (m. Dana Perlow - 2 children - Sadie and Jonah). Would love to get the low-down on your side of the family!
