My father's name was Carl and I also have a brother named after him. Carl (my father) committed suicide in 1944 and my mother Grace had to put all five children in the state orphanage. My father would have been born in 1909 in Chicago, Il (I think). His parents were of Danish decent and he was very close to them. He was the only one to graduate from high school which was unheard of in those times. When he was 33, his parents decided to sell the apartment building which we lived in, and they moved out west somewhere, by the pictures I have of them. My dad couldn't take the stress of trying to feed six other people besides himself and he began drinking and abusing my mother Grace. He finally killed himself and all of us siblings have not seen each other, as far as I know, since 1947 in the orphanage. I was adopted, my siblings, Caroly and Carl twins; Lenore the oldest, then me Beverly and John was the last youngest born to Grace and Carl Moline.
If any of this sounds familiar please let me know, I have been trying to find Carl, who would be approximately 61 now for years and I still have had no success. Thank you so much for writing. Bev D'Andrea in Phoenix, AZ
