My mother Joan Gail Erkenbeck, was born to Clinton Gail Erkenbeck and Valda Clark Erkenbeck in Lacota, Michigan in 1917. When Valda died in 1926 Clinton vanished leaving Joan, and three siblings to be raised by others. Clinton was known to have lived in Parkridge, New Jersey, Santa Monica, California in the early 60s and moved to Florida where he died. No information as to dates of birth, marriage to second wife Gladys or death. Any info would be appreciated.
