Surnames: Liss, Cranmer, Wagner

I didn't check closely to see if I had included any of these records previously. It looks like the John W Liss that was the WWII veteran was the son of August Liss (son of Frederick and Ernestine). I did not find any more about Frederick Jr. sons of Frederick and Ernestine Liss, who seems to have disappeared from records between 1917 and 1920. Perhaps an influenza victim? Looks like Rudolf Liss, another son of Frederick and Ernestine may have been a patient (psychiatric?) for a number of years at Lakeland, NJ.
