Our son Terry, and daughter Wendy asked us to check this site. I have the actual birth certificate in safe deposit box for Rudolph "Rudy" Henry Pleger, father of my husband, Lorne Pleger. Rudolph was born November 7, 1895 in Rathdrum, Idaho.Rudolph's parents were Ernst Rudolph Pleger and Bertha Kuloske Milkey.Both were from Germany or perhaps Gdansk Poland. We will do some more research for you.
We do know Rudy had two older brothers, Adolph and Walter.He also had an older sister, Margaret.
Rudy's dad, Ernst Rudolph Pleger, had two brothers.They came from Germany together.There was some kind of dispute between the brothers and each went their own way.
I will contact Lorne's older sister, Areta.She is ten years older than Lorne and will have more information. She also has the family bible.
Rudolph Henry Pleger married Nina Marie Hazelton from Coldwater Lake, Michigan.Nina's parents were Royal Delmar Hazelton from Arelius, Michigan and Emma Adell Stitt from Batavia, Illinois
