Ok, so Fran was a Zenner, and she married Bernie Weber. Just keep that thought; we'll get back to it, promise.
Now, this week, Larry found another genealogy website with a new old photo that we hadn't seen before--this time, it's three men in front of a garage, in Pierz:
It says John Weber, Alfred Dietz and Louie Gottwalt in about 1934.
Could be the same place, right? I mean, they repaired and sold tires, and gas, looks like. Frank says it's now Red's Auto.
About the first paragraph up there--Fran and Bernie Weber? Bernie was John Weber's son, so they were Frank's Uncle Bernie and Aunt Fran.
Now here's some frosting on the cake--If you peruse Franks page, you'll read about a couple by the name of Young:
"Rosetta [Frank's mom] lived with Mabel Young. Clarence and Mabel Young came from Illinois with the last name “Younger”, but changed their name as they no longer wanted to be associated with their cousins Cole Younger and Cole’s brothers Jim, John and Bob (Jesse James cohorts)". There's much more about Jesse James and the Younger gang. Fascinating, huh?
Oh MAN I'm glad Larry's back online! 😊
