It was great to hear back from you as well. Your post is an older one and I just joined today so I wasn't sure if you would get my posting or not. Right now I'm reading Uncle Norman's book and I was curious about my great grandfather so when I googled Joseph Edwin Kunkel, that led me to this site. I just talked to my dad, who recently turned 80, and he's going to look in his boxes for some family tree stuff as I was asking him about his great grandfather but he's not remembering much. He remembers his Grandma Winnifred Blanche Wright having 2 brothers and a sister who never married and they all lived together in Missouri but then he seems to recall a 3rd brother who moved to California. I was only 4 when my Grandma Winnie died,she lived in Selah so we called her Grandma Selah. Grandpa Joseph died in 1951 before I was born,and my parents still live in Yakima. Your info. is interesting and I would like to know more. I'll let you know if my dad digs up any interesting family pics or a family tree.
