My husband is the one related to you. But I'm the one interested in the family tree : ) His great great grandfather, Frank Gierke, was Elda Mae's brother. Frank was the 2nd child of Adam Gierke and Mary Ann Lamont. Frank left Grayling and lived and died in Manistique, MI.
You say your are the granddaughter of Geraldine. I did meet your grandmother too when I was in Grayling. Who is your mother?
Also, is Bob doing well?
