I am trying to trace my grandmother's family and have had little luck so far. Her mother's name was most like Darria and father's name was Charles Giebel. At least 2 sons Adam and Henry and one sister possibly. She was the youngest. She passed away in Ukiah CA and her obit said two brothers survived her. She married my grandfather in 1918 in New York City. He was in the Navy. They eventually settled in Potter Valley, CA after a time spent in Washington where their only daughter Ellen was born. There were 7 sons of whom the next to youngest was my father Maurice "Jerry" Hickey. Husband abandoned her and married someone else thus committing bigamy. Any info on her family, brothers especialy, would be appreciated. I was adopted out against my Dad's will and found them 5 weeks before he passed on. As to my grandfather's whereabouts we only know he was in Southern CA somewhere after marrying a Salvation Army Worker at San Quentin Prison in the early 40's. One of the other sons told him to finally either stay home or get permanently lost. Supposedly he made a lot of money in the highway industry.
