Paul Kreps - b 1896 or 1897 d 1921 CA or WA
Searching for ANY information about the ancestors of my grandfather, Paul Kreps, who was born in 1896 or 1897 - probably in CA, married around 1916 to Mary Olive Hays, and died - probably in Olympia, WA - in January of 1921. I believe I know where he is buried, but I don't know his parents' names or anything else.
Family lore says ancestors were "Pennsylvania Dutch," so I assume they were from Pennsylvania at some time.
Mary Olive Hays was a member of the Church of the Brethren in California; it's likely that Paul Kreps was too, but I'm not sure.
Thanks for any help!
