i found this post on another site Hi Marc, I have some info about your grandfather. He was born in Chicago and left home at the age of 14 since there was no money to feed so many mouths. He traveled all overthe countery riding the rails and met your grandmother. They married ad your mothr was one of 7 children they had. He had a younger sister that died very young. Your Aunt Catherine was named after her. I'm trying to get more information but since it is all from Chicago I haven't had much luck.
