Cane,
"Josiah crook was living in Monroe North Carolina in 1920"

Is this the 1920 census, that you mean?
This man was born in NC, a Farm Operator and has another son also appears with his family, on the same census page

The death info from NC dated 1925 posted by alviegal is this man. He was a farmer.

BeverleyW Report 27 Jan 2013 22:15

But if she was Josiah's widow and then married Richard, she would have been a Crook...

I see that in 1891 Richard is down as 'Uncle', could he be Josiah's brother?
