Kavalec is so close to the family surname that I am researching.My grandmother's maiden surname was Kavale.If anyone here knows those I am looking for I would love to hear from you.
Facts: My grandmother is still alive, and since she was born in 1900 she will be 100 years old in 2000.She was born in Pennington (or maybe it is Hennington) County, Minnisota.Her surname was Kavale.She comes from a large family.Her parents came from Norway, and after arriving in the United States were a founding family of a Lutheran church in their town in P/Hennington County.
She married Lowell Leffingwell, who died of diabetes about 1941 or 1942.They had two sons: 1.Lawrence (Larry) Bruce Leffingwell (my father).He was born in 1930 and died in 1974. 2.About 11 or 12 years later a second son was born and he is still living.
After Lowell Leffingwell died, my grandmother remarried.She lived with her family in Inglewood, California, for many years.She is still in California.
I know very little about Lowell and Larry Leffingwell since I was raised by an adopted father who married my mother.
Hoping to hear from someone who may know some of our family history.
