My father, Carol Frances Xavier Holscher, was born in Dyersville, Iowa, I think in either 1901 or 1904. His parents names, I believe, were Frances and Francis. I'm sorry to be vague about the facts but Dad died in 1957 and I've had almost no contact with his family, although I would dearly love to know more about them.
Dad came from a large family and the names of his siblings that I know about are Agnes, Leona and Leon.
I hope this helps you or is of interest, eventhough it's not about Bernard.(Never heard of him!)
If you have the chance would you let me know something about this family?Thanks, Gretchen
