Frances Waddell Cooney (1st marriage) Dockerty was married to
William Archie Dockerty, they lived in Stockton, California
up until 1943 when my father was 28, she was in her fifties (I think).
She died early in 1943 following surgery, and Archie was killed in an auto crash on August 27, 1943 (San Joaquin County). I believe Frances had a brother.
