Thank you for responding. I am trying so hard to pick up my family line and find living relatives. It seems as though the family has been scattered to the wind and anyone that may have had information has passed away. It seems that my brother and I are all that is left and I know that just can't be true. There has to be some people still alive. I have very little info, but what I have I will share.
My father was Bobby Dean Brakebill. DOB: 11/25/1934. Oklahoma City Oklahoma DOD: 8/18/1974. Chicago Illinois
My Grandmother was Erin Adeline Brakebill. Maiden Name: Wilkerson. Mother's maiden name: Ashurst DOB: 12/1/1912 Oklahoma DOD: 2/19/1980 Glendale California
My brother said that he is sure that our grandfather's name was Ralf Brakebill. I don't have anything more on him.
My mother was Sandra Jean Brakebill Maiden Name: Brown Mother's Maiden name is believed to be Critchley. Not sure on the spelling. DOB: 11/9/36 Chicago Illinois DOD: 1/11/1985 Cicero Illinois.
I am hoping to go out to California sometime next summer. It would be a blessing to be able to meet with someone that is related and knows some family history.
