I am writing this for my husband, John Gantner. He has few living relatives to help him with his genealogy. His father was William Joseph Gantner b. 08 Mar 1909, d. 1962, married to Mildred Dorothy Petersen b. 07 May 1910, d. 1952 -- no marriage date, lived in Chicago, IL and Wisconsin area. William's father was John Gantner, born about 1874 in Austria/Hungary/Germany or Romania. William's mother was Josephine Frank, also born in those same 4 countries somewhere about 1878. No further information is known by any living relatives. Mildred Dorothy Petersen's mother was Thea Richelsen b. abt. 1889 believed in IL and d. in 1962. Midred's father was Edward Petersen b. abt 1887 in German, d. date unknown. My husband was only 5 when his mother died and his father didn't share anything before dying.
