George and Almarinda (Crosby) Starkey are listed in the 1900 census for Center Twp, Gibson County, IN. They must have moved to IL between 1901 & 1925.
ALMA (COSBY/COLBY/CROSBY) STARKEY
Alma is listed in the 1926 LaSalle-Peru (LaSalle County, Illinois) City Directory as widow of George. At this time she was residing at 1715 Brewster Street, Peru, IL. Alma's maiden name was CROSBY on death certificate, COSBY in obituary & COLBY in another genealogy. I have since changed it to "CROSBY".
Sherman and his wife, Esther (BELLAMY) and two children are listed in the 1926 LaSalle-Peru (Illinois)
