Kendall-Hooker Marriage

I've received a couple of emails asking me about William C. Kendall; specifically, the elusive marriage record I'm looking for (thanks for the emails, by the way!). I appreciate the interest in my search. In addition to replying to your kind emails, I thought I'd also post this information in my blog.

William Kendall (from Shelbyville, IN) married Myrtle Hooker, who was from Forsyth County, NC (I don't know where or when they got married). I do know that they had 3 children together:

William Earl (1939-1962) - died in Ashtabula, OH
Juanita Irene (1940-1991) - born in Forsyth Co, NC; died in Cuyahoga, OH
Child #3 (1944) - born in Guilford Co, NC

Child #3 must remain anonymous because this is a living individual. Out of respect for the privacy of others, I will not post the names of anyone I know (or believe to be) living.

While I have birth certificates for the two younger children (and I've checked their counties of birth for a marriage record), I have not yet discovered where the oldest child was born. I'm working on it, but so far, no luck. I realize that that particular discovery might very well provide me with a valuable clue as to where William C. and Myrtle got married.

I find it interesting that the two older children wound up living in Ohio. I haven't figured out that connection yet, though.

As soon as I make any type of discovery, I'll be sure to post it.
