I'm looking for family of Dr. Arthur W. Karch who was born in Frankfort Illinois 1886. He was the Mayor of Monroe County Michigan from 1939-1940 and he was also a doctor at the Monroe County Hospital.
His first wife's name was Marion and his second wife's name was Kathryn. He had three daughters from his first marriage. Edith, Marion and Nancy. He had 7 brothers and sisters. Charles of Monroe, Horton of Glen Ellyn, Illinois , Albert of Illinois, F. Lora, Lydia and Carrie Karch.
His sisters married and became Mrs. Carl Fodness of Black Duck Minnesota, Mrs. George McGrath of Blue Island, Illinois, and Mrs. Laura Morlan of St. Petersburg, Florida.
His parents were Jacob and Louisa Karch. Jacob was born in New York.
I would really like to find any living relatives as I am the great-grandaughter of his brother Albert. Albert was born as a Karch but changed his name to Hartman. I am trying to find out why there was a name change in our family as well.
