Nancy, I think you may be referring to my great grandfather or possibly a great uncle. My grandfather was William Albert Fermazin. He was born in 1896. I've been told that he was born in Minnesota. Later his family moved to Aurora, Il, and Montgomery, Il. I'm not sure of the order in which they moved. I know there were several siblings but I don't have names. Any additonal information would be greatly appreciated as I don't have much to go on.
