I Have been looking for information in my family both from my fathers side and mothers side.Otis and Bertha Ries(father)and the Ahearn's (mother's side).What I do know is Otis and Bertha lived in Ohio around Bowling Green because that's where my father Leonard M. Ries was born May 3 1909.They had 5 sons Harold,Kenneth ,Richard,Alvin and Leonard.Bertha died Feb 6 1953 which I found in the obituaries in the Daily Sentinnel Tribune.Have not found anything on Otis.At some point they moved to Michigan but can't find anything.
