My grandmother was born in Brooklyn I believe or she may have been born in Germany. We are not certain on that. Her father was Charles Geibel and mother's last name was Darra (Darria). She was born in 1896, worked as a telephone operator and married my grandfather in 1917. He was a fire fighter in the Navy at that time. She had 7 kids of whom #6 was my father and lived in Potter Valley and Ukiah in Mendocino County in Northern CA. She is buried there in the cemetery (1947). According to her obit she had two brothers who had come out from NY to take her back with them. They may have been older. One I believe was Andrew and one may have been Henry. They were Jewish converted to Catholicism. I need to find her relatives who would also be my relatives. We have no idea of where her husband ended up after he committed bigamy and moved out of history.
