Hi, I am Mary Kay Balluff. My father is Gustave Balluff III, but he has always been a junior to us as my grandfather Gustave John Balluff (the real Jr.) did not acknowledge that he was a junior although when he was a boy, they called him "Buddy". His grandfather is Charles Balluff married to Louisa Steiner. My father knew that his grandfather was also a Gustave married to Mary Bernero.He knew his grandmother, Mary Bernero when he was a young boy but did not know his grandfather nor much about him. I was very thrilled to learn this, as the history before my grandfather was not well known to any in the family. Both my grandparents Gustave Balluff and Mary Grace Meskimmen are deceased. My father was raised in Chicago and moved to Detroit when he was about 14.I do not personally know any Balluffs in Michigan but there are a few in my home town.
