Charles Framke was my Great grandfather. I never met my Great grandmother as she had passed away before I was born. They lived in Bay City MI and he was a farmer and an organist at their local Lutheran church. They had 4 children, Carl, Henrietta, Margaret, and Arnold?, we called him Arnie. Henrietta was my grandmother and she married Samuel Leland Kennedy. They had 5 children. Austin, Ross, Madeline, Eileen; my mother, and Suzanne. My mother married Gerald La Forest and they had 2 children me and my sister Karen. Carl married Jennifer ?. They had 2 children Carl Albert and Becky. Becky married Lee Post a second or third cousin. Many of the Framkes still live in the Bay City area. My Uncle Carl may have more info on my g grandfather's past. I have see his draft papers and discharge papers from the German/ Prussian army. I also believe that my cousin Mary; Austin's daughter may have some info also. Hope this helps fill in some of the gaps and gives you a few more sources to check out.
