Well, maybe not so amazing. Just a disappearance. James and Dortha (Boyd/Boyet) Cook were married in 1884 in Reynolds Co., MO. I have evidence that they had at least one child and possibly three: Dollie May, Charley, and Ed. These three are listed as servants on the 1900 census -- in Wayne County families (Dollie May and Charles in the family of Hugh and Visa Walker). There's no sign of James and Dortha in 1900. No news. No online records. I am prepping for a trip to the area, and any info would be helpful. James' (born 1851) father was a George Cook. Dortha was born in 1864. Thanks.
