I am trying to verify a story in my family that my grandfather, Albert Jones b.1888, was visiting his uncle Benjamin Race in Weeping Water, NE when the Spanish-American War began (1898)and was sent back home to Hull, England.
I have found a Harry Race b.abt. 1845 in England and a Frederick W Race b. abt 1854, also in England who were residing in Weeping Water in 1900 per the U.S. Census. I would like to find out if there is a link from them to my family.
