Mel and Mary Koebbe, (Francis Melvin Koebee)are listed on the mailing list for Hayes reunions held in various locations in Indiana and Illinois during the 40's, 50's and 60's. Their address is listed as 39 Sulphur Springs Road, Winston Park, Manchester, Missouri. I have a report that Melvin was born 18 Jan 1926 in St. Louis, MO and died 4 Oct 2009 in Gainesville, FL. He was married to Mary (Unknown) and had a son F. Steven Koebbe who died in 2005 in Gainsville FL. Since the Koebee's do not seem to have a direct connection to the Hayes, it probably through his wife Mary that a Hayes connection is made.
I would appreciate any information on Melvin Koebbe that may help me connect them to the Hayes family.
