Munns Are Navy Minded Folk Dad Follows Sons in Service.

"Papa" Ralph Munns, enlisted in the navy at the Sioux Falls main station today and told the recruiting officers that he wanted to serve in the same branch of the service with his four sons. The Adrian, Minn., father Is enlisting in the construction battalions as a seaman first class, following his four boys into the navy. He has four younger sons who will have to wait a few years before getting in, too.

Ralph E, Munns, 24, is a boatswain's mate, first class, with seven years in the navy, and now serving on a seaplane tender.

Served on Marble head
 William E., 22, is a gunner's mate, second class, with two years in the navy, and was on the U. S. cruiser Marblehead before it was put out of commission. He is now on the USS Parker.

Harvey E, 21, is a seaman, second class, training for gunner, and serving on the USS Cleveland.
Gerald, 19, apprentice seamen, Is leaving today, Navy day, to begin training at Great Lakes.
The dad is ready to depart as soon as he Is called. He will serve as a carpenter in overseas construction.

Four More Sons
The four boys at home, one ot whom is about ready to join, are: R***, 17; L***, 15; L***, 12, and R***, 8. Munns says that his own family and close relatives already have nearly enough men serving in the navy to man a small ship, and the navy recruiting officers agreed that the Munns family can be rated 100 per cent "Navy minded".


Another similar article in 1942 pretty much repeats the same stuff about the family, but does mention where Ralph was in Oct. 1942

"Two other sons. Ralph, Jr.. and Harvey, are serving In Atlantic waters."

Mother's obit in 1937

Detroit Free Press
Detroit, Michigan
Sunday, July 11, 1937 - Page 7

Just close the clipped article that someone else has saved and then  scroll down that column to the  obit for Mrs. Justine Simancek.



Gloria's sister Mary Dingfelt died in 1958. Her obit list Gloria as " Mrs. Gloria Taylor. Denver. Col"

Gloria's sister Claire Brinkmann died in 1965. Her obit list Gloria as " Mrs. Gloria Taylor. (no location given)


This appears to be death record for Gloria.

A little more follow up in case you haven't found this yourself. It appears Eugene was also buried in Greenwood Cemetery, but is listed as "Jean", not Eugene/Gene.

Martha's obit states her husband Gene died in 1938. She was buried in Greewood Cemetery in Brooklyn.

Fort Lauderdale News
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Thursday, April 15, 1982 - Page 34

Just close the clipped article that someone else has saved and then you pan over to the obit for Martha E. Praschak. She is listed with the other death notice and there is also an obit for her just above the death notice section.

According to that passnger ship record, he was born Midletown Ireland and his mother's name was Rebecca.

Ship record:

This appears to be his mariage to an Anna Maria Hasty in 1926. Everything seems to match known info about the two of them from ship record & 1930 census.


This appears to be the source of the transcription.

I'm not seeing anything else. Just using last name came up with this, which is no help.
