Thanks Sandra,

I have most of the information re the deaths but didn't have the husband of Anna - thanks for that.

Nancy Lynn Hardie was the daughter of Alexander and Geneva - sadly she only lived 10 days. Wonder if they had any more kids?
Wonder if William H Fratz married and had kids? My object is to find any living relatives. Thanks for the help.

Its always best to say exactly what you have already found so that we do not waste our time duplicating. RootsChat is a forum for searching for ancestors but hopefully by writing as much about the family as we can, anyone can google and pick up the family name and be directed to this thread.

You have the death dates so could try and email the nearest public libraries to see if there are any obituaries for the family.
