    I received two different reports on cause of death for Josephine.  A friend of her son Alfred reported that Jocie died of tuberculosis in 1937.  Two years later I received a report from Jocie's granddaughter that she died giving birth to her daughter Bobbie Jean Cooksey.  It may be she did have tuberculosis, which was a complication leading to her death in giving birth.

    "Here's what I know about Pete [Cooksey].  He married 1st, Josephine (Jocie) Almond on 18 Aug 1927 in Pope Co., AR.  Pete and Jocie had a child named Alfred Lee Cooksey in 1930/1.  Jocie was my friend's mother. Jocie died of TB [see report below from Jocie's granddaughter that she died in childbirth] about 6 months [years] (1937) after my friend was born."
