I am longing to learn about my grandfather, Luther Homer Zellner.I have precious memories of when I was a little girl from two years old to about six, until his death in 1951 of my grandpa. He joined the navy just before the 1st World War, I believe before America got involved (of which I cannot find any documentation); then moved to Dallas, Texas where he married Mary Sweat in Dallas - about 1913. I believe my grandfather's family came from Germany in 1760.
