Re: Frainer's in Sangamon Co. Illinois
Greetings from Melbourne, Australia. There is a family mystery you might be able to help me with. My grandfather was named Harold Robert Frainer Webb when he was born in the town of Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia, on 18 October, 1893. No one was listed under father. His unmarried mother was Ellen Mary Webb.
I have always wondered about the name Frainer - whether it was meant to be Trainer, or whether it was a clue to the father's name. The name Frainer doesn't come up anywhere else in my family tree.
