Thanks for the message Nicole. We are related through marriage -- that is, through your great grandfather, Paul Barfknecht. Paul's brother, Emil Barfknecht, married my great aunt, Laura Hall in 1905. Since your great grandfather was Paul Barfknecht, what was the first name of your grandfather -- was it Wilson, Glenn, or Walter?
My father, Herb Tonnell (1907-1987), was a life-long friend of Floyd Barfknecht (1906-1984), Emil & Laura's oldest son.
