Heather, I tried to e-mail you but it came back. It seems your mailbox was full for four days. Anyway, here is what I tried to send to you. We may have already answered some of these questions.
Without knowing Blanches maiden name it is hard to find her parents. Look at the list I sent and let me know if any sound right to you. I know it is a long shot. There are no marriage records for them on Ancestry. I can't find anything else. If you get a little more information, let me know and I will try again.Beth
