Since my first posting, I have discovered the following:
Ralph Van Vranken, born Oct 25, 1885 in California, died Jun 29, 1946, Ca. He was the son of: Eber Van Vranken
(1828 NY-1909 CA) and Caroline T Moore. Ralph had three brothers, Roy C, Edward and Thomas. Ora Ruhland married Ralph about 1909 in California. They had one child, Louise Helen Van Vranken, born in California in 1912. They must have divorced as Ora married three more times. George Claire, a Bennett and a Condy. Was Ora Condy when she died in 1951 in California. Shirley Milbert has assisted me in filling in the details that I now have. Is this Ralph possibly the one you have in your records?
