Hi. I'm looking for information about Fred Wallace Carbine b. 1911 (CA), his father, Fred Sr. b. 1885 (Illinois) d. 1973 (San Mateo, CA), and Esther Gerring Carbine b. abt. 1890 (PA), d. 1969 (Santa Clara, CA). Being that Fred Jr. was the most recent, and died in Fresno, I thought I'd try here. I also have a message on the Carbine board. My grandmother was put up for adoption in 1920, in San Francisco, CA, and we just got her birth cert. (she died in the late 1960's) and it states Fred Sr. and Esther Gerring as her birth parents. Any information about these people would be greatly appreciated. I've lived here in the Bay Area all my life, (my grandmother, born Dolores Esther Carbine, and adopted as Elizabeth Marie Childs, was raised in Glendale, CA, as too, was my father), and my "birth-greatuncle and grandparents" were only miles away. My cousins and I are very interested in any information. Thank you.
