After checking things through a little more, it turns out that my grandfather Earl C. had a father named Carl (whom my father knows practically nothing of), and he had two brothers (Howard and Ralph) whom we also know very little about. My grandfather died at about 57 yrs. of age in San Diego CA in 1954. My father tells me that there is so little that we know, and that the families did not keep in touch, that it is hard to have clear facts. So, while I wrote one thing in introducing the subject, please excuse my confusion.
