Some other information I have.All of my family is in Kansas City and Independence.My grandfather Daniel Jessie Tripp died in 1957 a year after my birth so I never knew him. From what I know, my grandmother Elsie was not able to take care of the eight children (during the depression?) and had to give all of them (my father) up to foster homes. I wonder where my grandfather was during that time.Maybe ill, I do not know.Also, somewhere I have read about a woman whose name was unknown and divorced from a Motsinger.Thank you so much for your help. I am kind of alone with this matter.
