Re: Schaak siblings, Ariz & Wisc & England !!
Hi there, I am Phillip Rudolp Enos (Rudi Enos). Laura Anna Schaak was my grandmother. My father, also Phillip Rudolph Enos married Doreen Mary Baines (from England) in 1949 and died in 1985. My mother still lives here in England as do I and my brother Colin and sister Pamela.
Uncle Art was living in California when he died where we have some family called Champion, (Jean Champion?)and Aunt Vera. Last I heard they were living in Sonora. Also Dolores (also known as Rudy).
My Aunt Tiny (Elaine) married 'Wild Bill' Horton who was a famous hell driver and actor known for being in the Gary Moore television show and in movies. There are many stories in the family about Hollywood as my dad Phil was born in Burbank in 1929 where my grandfather was working as a stunt man and stunt double for Errol Flynn, so they say. Apparently, one of our famous relatives was Busby Berkley who was born William Berkeley Enos and is supposed to be related to my grandpa Ru but I dont know this for sure. Maybe his brother or cousin?. Ru Enos was born in Knox county Tennessee in 1892. You can find details of my Oma (what our family has called our grandmothers, from the German)Laura Anna Schaak if you search for The Lind, Esser, Norby, Nachbar pages of Geaneology. Lauras parents were Jacob H Schaak and Christina Krautkremer from Minnesota. Christinas parents were Phillip Krautkremer and Anna Marie Nachbar.
I have no information before my grandpa on his side of the family and would love to hear something. My personal website is www.rudienos.co.uk where there is the start of documenting our family. My best regards to those of you out there who may be family.
