Dear Mr. Unger,
If we were in the same room I would hug and kiss you for doing this for me and finding her. I’m so excited. Wow! I do have written for her that she was Bohemian. I had no proof except she told my mother her family were Gypsy’s. My mother and grandmother always whispered about it and told me never to tell anyone because that wasn’t good to be.
My mother said she came in through Canada (no proof), met my grandfather, who lived in the State of Maine (his birth state) on the USA side of the Canadian border. They went to Manitoba Canada to marry (have a copy of their marriage certificate) and then settled in Wisconsin about 150 miles north of Milwaukee. I have been confused as to why they married in Canada north of Wisconsin. I certainly will check into Chicago.
Most Sincerely, L. C.
