Looking for info on my grandfather. Passed away in 1992. Born in 1921. Three children, Francis, Judith, and Mark. married to Annastasia, not sure what year. Was a Marine for 19 years. Need to find out parents names and possibly grandparents names.

Do you know more about Francis? Was she married and where was she born? I might have a connection for you.

Francis Pearl was a man? Well, anyway - we might have some ties (though I don't seem to be getting anywhere for the past couple of weeks trying to link someone to her). Let me give you some information.

Frances Gross married John Joseph Russo. She was supposedly from New Mexico. My father was born in NY. They had four children. Michelina, John Jr., Thomas and Edwardine (Denise). She left my father and married an african american man named David (can't remember last name) who owned a neon sign shop in Newark, NJ. They supposedly had children too. My father then went on to marry my mother, which is where I fit in. I am looking for Francis for my sister who has not seen her mother since she was very very young. She is hoping she is alive, but if she has passed on, we would like to know too.

Do you think you are connected somehow?

The Frances I am looking for moved to Newark New Jersey, after divorcing my father. She married an african-american man named David (can't remember his last name) who owned a neon sign shop. They are said to have had 2 children.

You are related?

I just re-read your last message. You ARE related to David who owned the sign shop? What is your mothers name, if you don't mind me asking?

related to David?

Sorry. While my name is Frances, and I have lived in
Newark, I was never married to a David. The Frances that you know sounds much older than I.
Again, I've only been married once and to a man who has only been married once and that is to me.

Thank you very much. I guess what I was getting at was a possible connection to your mother. Thank you for your help.
