    Cyrus D. Cornwell is a WWII Navy veteran (Petty Officer Third Class) and is buried at Riverside National Cemetery: Link here and here.


    His older brother, Sylvester, shows up in the 1920 census along with his and Cyrus' mother who apparently passed away by the 1930 census after which their father remarried by the 1940 record. Additional leads - Cyrus' maternal grandmother and maternal uncle also are listed.

    Sylvester passed away in San Diego, CA on December 24, 1984: SSDI and California, Death Index. He was also a WWII vet (Army Sergeant) and is buried at Ft. Rosencrans National Cemetery: Link here.

    I haven't found any spouses or data on the sisters, but did find this mention of the two brothers:

    Here we found a couple of oldtime wildfowlers, Cyrus Cornwell of Roosevelt and his brother, Sylrester Cornwell of Mineola, lackadaisically scanning the skies ...
