I am looking for the supposed uncle of my 2G-grandfather Ruetta Hankley. Young Ruetta and his brother, Frederick, left Switzerland with their grandparents (name unknown) and an UNCLE, for the U.S. Grandma died at sea; Grandpa died soon after arrival in central Indiana, approximately 1850. In a Sept. 15, 1923 news article about the Hankley-Near family reunion, the uncle is named as DAN MASLEN. "Hankley" would not be the correct spelling in Switzerland, so i am not convinced of the spelling for 'Uncle' Dan Maslen is correct either. Does this story ring a bell for any Maslens out there?
