My Dad's Uncle Fred was born on Feb 18,1874 in Palatine, Illinois and died in Loveland, Colorado on December 15, 1953. I was three days shy of two then, so I never knew him. He married Grace Cronkhite (b. November 11, 1873) on June 10, 1896 at Diamond Lake, Illinois. Grace died on August 2, 1949.

They had four children:

  1. John Charles
  2. Edith Grace, born Oct. 2, 1898
  3. Marian Margaret
  4. Paul Hobert, born June 29,1906.
