His first wife was Mary (Kate) Chelminewicz.THey were married in Amsterdam, NY.They had 2 children. One died at 7 mo.The other child was a boy.THey moved to Chicago / or Detroit. ( My letters are not handy to look up).Anyway, the wife was killed in a car crash and the boy was put in a orphanage.Mother was married in 1936 and recieved a gift from Wisconsin from her uncle John.I still have the tablecloth and napkins that were sent.
Would those dates fit into your dates?Do you have any additional information that you could share with me?
