Hi,

I had a cousin (my dad's cousin, so my second cousin, I guess) named Earl Karn, who worked for a power and light company in Michigan. I don't know any more about him except he was listed in a "Who's Who". I don't know if it was the main "Who's Who", or one related to the engineering profession. I'm not sure where/if he got his engineering degree - maybe Purdue in Indiana.

Please let me know if this is relevant. Thank you.

Regards, Dave

Daniel Earl Karn

Daniel Earl Karn was president of Consumers Power Company in Michigan. The Daniel Karn generating plant is named in his honor. He graduated from Purdue University and may have been a native of Indiana. He was married to Marie - - - -, and secondly to Vivian Vanderlyn Alter, my aunt. By his first wife he had two children, James Karn, Marsha Karn Nichols. Marsha's son Bill Nichols is a lawyer in Jackson, Michigan. Marie, Vivian and Marsha are all deceased.

Holly,
Wow! Thanks a lot for the info. My Dad talked of Earl Karn as a Purdue graduate that went to work for the power company in Michigan, and made a name for himself by finding where they were losing efficiency, and fixing the problems. In my research, I've found that he was D. Earl Karn, and now, thanks to you, I know that the D is for Daniel, his grandfather (or great), and my dad's middle name. If you're looking for family info, or have some to offer, my email is dkarn1@twcny.rr.com. Thanks for the feedback!
