I am Louis Eugene Pleshe son of Louis Frank Pleshe. My Father's Dad was Nicholas Pleshe. I believe he came over from Croatia with a last name of Plese and changed it to Pleshe. Circa late 1800's. Nick married Tonka. Last name of his wife slips my mind at this point. My Great Great Grandfather was mister centennial in Rutland, Illinois in 1955.
