Locating Eva Gorham Proctor

Locating Eva Gorham Proctor

Surnames: Proctor, Gorham
Hello:

I was wondering if someone could assist me in locating my great aunt. Eva Gorham Proctor was born in 1921 in St. Louis City. She and her husband, Alfred Proctor lived in Potosi Missouri until 1956, when Alfred died. Alfred was buried in St. Louis and I'm suspecting Eva may have moved back. Perhaps there's a City Directory or Telephone Directory listing for her during the period 1956- 1960. I have not found a record of her re-marrying, and I'm stuck. So any help will be sincerely appreciated.

Steve

Hi,

Eva doesn't appear in the death certificates which go up to 1962. Missouri considers death records as private and they're not open for inspection after 1962 except for special circumstances. See http://health.mo.gov/data/vitalrecords/ for the details.

The County genealogical and historical societies seem to make up for this by compiling their own death list from obituaries and other records. The St. Louis Genealogical Society, www.stlgs.org/ has many records and they do research too. Successful Searching!
