Richard was born to John & Elizabeth May, 18, 1929. He has 3 boys- Harold (myself b. 1956), John (b. 1958), and James (b. 1962). He had the one sister (Marie Evelyn) born 1921 and died June of 1991 (I believe I may have told you 1992 earlier).
Elizabeth was born 1903. Her father's name was John Pfenning and she was born in York, Ne. She had 2 younger brothers both deceased William and Peter. William had no children while Peter has 2 boys (Ronald & ?) and one girl (Mary Pfenning Slagle). Her mother died when she was about young (15 or 16). Elizabeth died December 21, 1992. Elizabeth and John were married in 1919 (if I remember correctly - I do have their marriage certificate though in German).
The family picture I mentioned in the earlier email has 2 girls and one boy, however the boy is the youngest (approx. 1 year) while the girls appear to be maybe 3 and 5. Therefore, I am not sure who they might be as George and Katie's children do not match the picture. I wonder if this might not be a picture of John & Katie Kern Schleicher (with Catherine, Anna, and George) and be from 1985. My father also has a portrait of a single man (assumed George - possibly John as from same era as previous picture) which I will also try to make a copy of and get to you. There is also an 8" x 10" in its original frame of George and another man behind the bar in the saloon which I will also copy and get to you along with any other pictures I can find. My grandmother's albums may contain pictures you might be interested in.
