From what I understand, Thomas and Ann Zager ran a grocery store in the Chicago area around the 1930s/40s. They had 5 children, but Edward is the one I'm most interested in. I believe he was a steelworker or something of that nature. I am his granddaughter, but he never knew me.
My grandmother, Eda Gibson, married Edward Zager around 1945. They gave birth to my father about a year and half later in August of 1946. Edward left my grandmother when my father was only 9 months old and was not seen again. We know that Edward went on to remarry and have other children. So I know I've got aunts, uncles and cousins floating around somewhere and I'd really like to make contact.
I know Edward had a sister named Ann Pring. Her twin children were born on July 4th. (The boy was Mickey, and I think the girl was Beverly.) Also, I think one of Edward's brothers was Tom or Thomas.
My grandmother Eda died 2 months ago, but my dad and I are still alive and kicking. If anyone has any information about my relatives, I'd be so grateful to hear from you!
