My Grandfather, George Eugene Koonce, had 5 siblings. Don't think it is a connection at that level. He was raised by his aunt, don't know their names yet, can ask my Dad. George ran off to marry my grandmother, Agnes Copeland, when they were 19 and 14 yrs old respectively. THis was in late 1910's i think. Agnes died in c.1972. George is still alive(95 yrs old) and lives in Fla.
