Thanks, I have his Death Certificate. He has his mother's maiden name as Jane Garen on his Marriage record to Alice (Bibbey) Bedwell from Decatur Co. Iowa. I still CANNNOT find mother's family anywhere. I have been given some names and places, however I find NO record of her anywhere. I am in SLC now and have looked everywhere. I have his father's family trace back to the 1700's from Delaware.
