Your dad Billy is my forst cousin. His father Billy and my dad Johnny are brothers. Your gramma was known to me as Aunt T. She was my favorite Aunt. I remember visiting that little house of hers in Homewood. In my research I saw that they tore it down and left an empty lot.
I have a great picture of Uncle Billy (your grampa) that was my dad's. Would be happy to make you a copy if you would like.
Your not kidding about big secrets. I have been researching for ten years now and have come across so little information. In the past efforts to speak with the older Arensberg's I found were like pulling teeth.
Also have a picture of my great grandfather He was your grampa's dad. Wasn't much of a father and contributed to the hard life experienced by my dad and your grampa.
Been years since I had seen your dad and Annie and Rudy. We were little kids. We were already in California when Aunt T died but my mom went back for the funeral. I still have her little funeral card.
Hope you recieve this. I tried the email you posted but it is innactive.
