This may sound a bit strange, but, my brother and sister and I know nothing about our Father or his family.  There is, unfortunately, no one left alive
in our family to tell/help us.  I thought maybe a 'lookup' of the marriage license made out by my Mother and Father would help a little and give us a
clue as to where to look for answers/relatives from his side.  My parent's names were James Neal Cook and Muriel Eppinger.  They were married in San
Antonio, Texas in March of 1957, my Mother just turned 17 (Born in 1939) and my Father was 20 or 21, I think, born in 1936.  My Fathers' parent's names were Kenneth Olin Cook and Anna T. Runnels.  My Mother's parents' names were William Henry Eppinger and Celesta Pohl.  I hope to glean a clue as to where my Father's' parents came from, etc.  Thank you very much, your friend,   Audrey
