Hi Kathy.I missed the part of your post about Ernest serving in World War 1 and now realize what generation you are talking about.You see your grandfather Ernest had 3 brothers ( Leo, Jim, Lawrence, and we believe 2 sisters.Now according to my mother-in-law Beverly she said that the 2 sisters died on TB, apparently pretty common back then.It doesn't surprise her that Ernest died of the same thing.I have to check on the dates, but you said that Ernest died in Battle Creek and we think that there might be a possibility that he died at the VA Hospital down there, but I am not sure if it was operating back then. The reason I misunderstood your post is that Lawrence's brother Leo had 3 boys and one girl.There names were,(you guessed it) Leo, Jim, Ernest, and Golden.This Leo jr. was my father-in-law (sort of).My mother-in-law and Jr. never were married but lived as husband and wife for 47 years and had 2 children between themselves. As far as the remarrying goes the entire family is littered with 1/2 brothers/sisters as well as tons of step children.As Beverly was talking I started sketching out a family tree that actually looked more like a tangle of grape vines. lol. I wish I would have came across this website earlier.Your grandfather Ernest still had 1 living brother, Lawrence, who died around Feb/March of this year.He was over 100 and there was an article about him in the Muskegon Chronicle.I will see if I can get a copy of it. Beverly told me that the family originally came over from France and that their original last name was Prott and was later changed to Prow. Leo Jr. still has a half brother and sister living.The sister has Altzheimers (sp), and the brother has cancer.I will try to stop over and get as much information from him as I can. Are you a student or faculty?
