Thank you so much for taking the time to respond. It has been a while since I posted, and I'm not sure what info I shared before, so I guess I will tell you what I know so far. My Father Joseph William Friedrich was born on May 11th 1908 to Anton Friedrich and Anna Schultz in La Salle, Illinois. Their family business was Friedrich Funeral Home. The story goes that he had a genius for a sister who died before he was born at only 6 years of age. She spoke and wrote several different languages and also composed music. My given name is Anna Creston Friedrich. If your grandparents don't mind please do ask them for me. I am not sure if we can exchange emails but I would like to and to help you in your quest as well.
Thanks again, Anne :)
