Here's my brick wall. My gr. grandpa was Frank Spenst. He died in 1946 in Auburn, Washington. He married Pauline Pommer, date unknown. Pauline naturalized to United States after Frank died. Some of their children were Zipporah (d. 1985, my grandma), Orpah Perschke (sp?) that lived in Goodsoil, Saskatchewan, Betty (possibly Elizabeth) Williams that also lived in Goodsoil. There was a Dave and a Jack. One of the boys lived in British Columbia, I remember visiting when I was small, but not his name. There were other sons, but my mother doesn't remember their names.
Pauline's father was a school teacher. The Germans sent him to Russia. She was born in Russia in 1885 (location unknown). They left Russia in the 1890's and landed in Canada.
