I earlier asked if you had Mary in the census of 1900. Hope you will post to the Most Wanted thread if you've found that record or not.
One of the reasons I asked about that particular census is that, until we find an earlier reference to her birth, it's probably the earliest (most timely) record of her date of birth. As well, the 1900 census often gives one record for month and year of birth. While we might find later references (incl. 1910 census), that earlier record for the whole family might help us evetually find family members SSDI, and then obituaries.
The 1900 census about a family is more important than some, too, because most of the 1890 census is gone. --GJ
While Craig Mason works with a different kind of law, I reached out on his Law forum to see if he had any ideas. See my post, below; let me know if I did a fair job of representing the issue. Law Forum ... Boys' School
It's appears an issue outside the box for Craig, by nature and location; however, maybe he'll have some ideas.--GJ
Linda, a few years ago, I did some internet research about the Windsor, Ontario area on my Cruise family line. I have a research report among the things on my computer that might help. I 'm getting ready to go to a conference ... doubt I'll find those notes before I leave. If you don't have him tracked down by the time I get back (12th), will you give my ear a tug to remind me. Seem to recall I found birth and death records . some real estate transactions ... maybe even a city directory.
Do you know if this Cook family was Catholic? --GJ
