Family lore has it that although Florence had custody of the boy, her ex-husband, Harvey KELLERMAN, "tricked the baby-sitter" and disapeared taking the boy. Florence had no idea where her ex-husband had taken him and a missing persons report was filled. Several months had past when the police showed up at Florence's residence to inform her of her young son's death. Family lore also is that Harvey KELLERMAN Sr. had taken "stolen" child to somehwere in Pennsylvania and that the boy's death occured somewhere in Pennsylvania sometime in the early 1950's.
My Uncle and Aunt, Floyd Daniel HARTMAN and Florence Lilly SLATER, had no children born to their marriage.
