Dear Richard,

I read your post about Clara Planck Smith. My Mother, Laura Clara Roof Lively, was the daughter of Fred (Planck) Roof and Annie Laura Dunn of Louisiana. Fred was adopted by the Roof family as a child but was the biological brother of Hattie, Laura and Clara. He never mentioned the Roof family and visited with Hattie, Laura and Clara from time to time while married to my Grandmother but never took her or their four daughters with him. Around 1914, he deserted my Grandmother in Hammond, La. and eventually died in Lepanto, Arkansas sometime in the 1920's. Apparently, after his death the Plancks were contacted by the family with whom he lived in Lepanto. They, in turn, contacted my Grandmother expressing surprise that he was married. A cousin, Ezra Planck (son of Charles), eventually contacted my Mother and established a relationship. That was the extent of my Mother's knowledge of her father so there are just unanswered questions for me. If you know anything about Fred's history, why he was adopted, etc., I would appreciate hearing from you.
