Hi Michelle! It's good to meet you! Herman was my mother's cousin! He was the son of Lottie McIntosh and her first husband ? Martin. Lottie, who's nickname was Short, was my grandfather's half-sister.
According to the info that I have Herman was born 16 October 1921 in Shamrock, OK and died 09 November 1999 in Choctaw, OK. He was 78 years old, not 28 as you have in your message. I knew him myself and I know that he was much older than that. He and his family used to visit my family when my mother was living.
I don't know what happened to his first wife Anna. I don't know if they divorced or if she died. I only knew his second family. His second wife was Modine ? I don't know what her last name was before she married Herman. I do know that she was raised in Sallisaw, OK.
Herman had three more children with his second wife. The oldest one is a daughter Mary Helen who was born about 1952 - 1953. Next they had a son Herman Martin, Jr. (Bimbo) who was born about 1954 - 1955. They also had another baby, a little girl, who only lived a couple of hours after her birth. She was born in the early 1960's in Oklahoma City.
I haven't seen or heard from any of them in years. It's been over 17 years since I heard from any of them. I don't know if Modine is still living or not.
If you will click on my name above and contact me at my email address I will give you information on Short's mother and grandparents if you want it. I have quite a bit of information about them that I'll be happy to give you.
