Dear Helen, Is this the Samuel Sholes Berger who was married to Edith Wakefield who was born 13 July 1892 in Tucson, Arizona?SHE is a granddaughter of my Wakefield ancestors.Would love hearing from you as I know of no one working on this WAKEFIELD line. Besides my grandpapa's notes, the following regarding the person I believe to be father of Samuel Sholes Berger, is what I have on my Berger family.
