For the records some historical facts , I received this mail today from : Artesia Historical Museum and Art Center. ( Artesia was the home town from Craig Baker.)
"Our City of Artesia received your request for records for Jane Cooney and Craig Baker, and it’s been forwarded here to our local museum. I have found some information, although no formal marriage/birth/death certificates are available. We don’t have any photographs of Jane or Craig, or any other materials in our collection.
Craig Kinsinger Baker was the son of an early Artesia physician, Dr. Perry Baker and his wife Maggie. (They came to Artesia, New Mexico in 1905) Craig was born in Artesia, New Mexico on September 5, 1907. Dr. Perry died in 1924. I can’t find any records of Craig and Jane’s marriage(s), but by 1930 he and Jane were boarding in Pennsylvania, where Craig was working as a civil engineer for the state highway department. Later in 1930, they were in St. Louis, Mississippi, where their son Joe Craig was born on August 16, 1930. In 1931 the family was living in Roswell, New Mexico, where their daughter Adele Mary was born on November 24, 1931. Craig was still living in Roswell in 1935, and made several trips to Puerto Rico/South America in the late 1930s—perhaps for civil engineering work? I found no further mentions of Craig after 1940.
Jane Cooney was harder to track down! She was born in Roswell, New Mexico in 1910. Interestingly, her father was also a physician-Dr. Daniel Cooney. Her mother was Mary R. Cooney. Jane’s father died on September 19, 1919 in Roswell and is buried there. Jane and her mother were still living in Roswell in the 1920s, but I don’t find any mention of Jane after 1927 when she was in high school.
At some point before 1951, Joe dropped the “e” from his first name, and went by “Jo” for the rest of his life. He married Barbara J. Clifton on October 6, 1951 in California. Joe died on February 12, 2007 and is buried in Denver, Colorado.
Adele went by several different names during her lifetime: Adele Mary Garrett-1967; Adele Mary Syvertson-1969; Adele Mary Morris-1971; Adele M. Barry-later in 1971; Adele M. Syvertson-1983. I don’t know if these last names reflect multiple marriages or not. She died on July 6, 2000.
I hope that this information helps to fill out your files—I’m an admirer of Charles Bukowski, and “Barfly” is one of my all-time favorite movies—I never dreamed that there was a local connection there!"
The last chapter made my fucking day .....
In addional I found this in : Albuquerque morning Journal, 10 June 1917.
So Jane had two sisters and one brother, she was the youngest family member, this is verified with the census of population as well.
